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

“We chose ProcessWire because of its excellent architecture, modular extensibility and the internal API. The CMS offers the necessary flexibility and performance for such a complex website like superbude.de. ProcessWire offers options that are only available for larger systems, such as Drupal, and allows a much slimmer development process.” —xport communication GmbH
