Documentation

Django swappable tasks

Introduction

Considering you have a django project running on different servers each with its own asynchronous tasks handler this project helps you have one way to process the tasks while converting to the respective handler in the background. Currently Google Cloud Tasks and Celery are supported.

Code Samples

To set up you will need to add the following to your settings.py file DEFAULT_ASYNC_TASKS_HANDLER = env('DEFAULT_ASYNC_TASKS_HANDLER') This can either be CELERY or GOOGLE_CLOUD_TASKS.

If you are using celery remember to set up other settings such as CELERY_BROKER_URL, CELERY_RESULT_BACKEND, CELERY_ACCEPT_CONTENT, CELERY_TASK_SERIALIZER, CELERY_RESULT_SERIALIZER, CELERY_TIMEZONE

For google cloud tasks remember to set up the following settings GOOGLE_CLOUD_PROJECT_ID, GOOGLE_CLOUD_TASKS_LOCATION_NAME, GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS

Add the view to your projects urls.py file as below

from django.urls import path, include
urlpatterns = [
          ...
          path('tasks/', include('django_swappable_tasks.urls')),    
          ...    
]

Assume you have a task as below

from myproject.celery_app import app

@app.task
def my_blocking_task(name, age):
      import time
      import random
      sleep_seconds = random.randint(20, 45)
      time.sleep(sleep_seconds)
      print("Hello {}, your age is {}".format(name, age)

To process a task asynchronously do it as below

from django_swappable_tasks.utils import process_task_asynchronously
from my project.tasks import my_blocking_task
task_kwargs = {"name": "John Doe", "age" : 18}
process_task_asynchronously(my_blocking_task, "google_default_queue", task_args=[], task_kwargs= task_kwargs)
