Minimal Redis job runner

pip install minique==0.5.0


minique /miniːk/

A minimal Redis job queue for Python 3.


  • Have a Redis server running.


from redis import StrictRedis
from minique.api import enqueue, get_job

# Get a Redis connection, somehow.
redis = StrictRedis.from_url('redis://localhost:6379/4')

job = enqueue(
    callable='my_jobs.calcumacalate',  # Dotted path to your callable.
    kwargs={'a': 5, 'b': 5},  # Only kwargs supported.
    # You can also set a `job_id` yourself (but it must be unique)

job_id =  # Save the job ID somewhere, maybe?

while not job.has_finished:
    pass  # Twiddle thumbs...

print(job.result)  # Okay!

# Get the same job later (though not later than 7 days (by default)):
job = get_job(redis, job_id)


  • Ensure your workers are able to import the functions you wish to run.
  • Set the callables the worker will allow with --allow-callable.
    • Alternately, you may wish to subclass to specify an entirely different lookup mechanism.
$ minique -u redis://localhost:6379/4 -q work -q anotherqueue -q thirdqueue --allow-callable 'my_jobs.*'

Sentry Support

Minique automatically integrates with the Sentry exception tracking service.

You can use the [sentry] installation extra to install sentry-sdk along with Minique, or you can do it manually.

Simply set the SENTRY_DSN environment variable; if all goes well, you should see a "Sentry configured with a valid DSN" message at CLI boot.

The other environment-configurable options also work as you would expect.

Exceptions occurring during job execution will be sent to Sentry and annotated with minique context describing the job ID and queue name.
