Task management for ProcessWire

Tasker

Task management for ProcessWire

Purpose


This ProcessWire module allows the execution of long-running (>> max_execution_time) jobs in ProcessWire.
It provides a simple interface to create tasks (stored as PW pages), to set and query their state (Active, Waiting, Suspended etc.), and to execute them via Cron, LazyCron or HTTP calls.
The TaskerAdmin module provides a Javascript-based frontend to list tasks, to change their state and to monitor task progress (using a JQuery progressbar and a debug log area). It also allows the on-line execution of tasks using periodic HTTP calls performed by frontend Javascript code.

How does it work


See the Wiki

Examples for module developers


The DataSet module performs long-running page imports and deletions using Tasker.

The MarkupPdfPager module performs pdf transformations and indexing using Tasker.

“We were really happy to build our new portfolio website on ProcessWire! We wanted something that gave us plenty of control on the back-end, without any bloat on the front end - just a nice, easy to access API for all our content that left us free to design and build however we liked.” —Castus, web design agency in Sheffield, UK
