Please suggest an equivalent of Celery in Node JS to run asynchronous tasks.
I have been able to search for the following:
I have run both manual and automated threads in background and interact with MongoDB.
node-celery is using redis DB and not Mongo DB. Is there any way I can change that?When I installed node-celery redis was installed as dependency.
I am new to celery, Please guide.Thanks.
Celery is basically a RabbitMQ client. There are producers (tasks), consumers (workers) and AMQP message broker which delivers messages between tasks and workers.
Knowing that will enable you to write your own celery in node.js.
node-celery here is a library that enables your node process to work both as a celery client (Producer/Publisher) and a celery worker (Consumer).
Go for Kue, it's a wholistic solution that resembles Celery in Python word; it has the concepts of: producers/consumers, delayed tasks, task retrial, task TTL, ability to round-robin tasks across multiple consumers listening to the same queue, etc.
Probably Celery is more advanced with more features with more brokers to support and you can use node-celery if you like, but, in my opinion, I think no need to go for a hybrid solution that requires installation of python and node when you can only use only language that's sufficient in 90% of the cases (unless necessary of course).
