girl_friday – a Ruby library for performing asynchronous task Jump to Story

Mike Perham has released a new Ruby library which focuses on performing asynchronous tasks. Unlike delayed_job, girl_friday runs inside of the same process as your Rails application, alleviating the need to execute multiple external application instances. It also integrates with 3rd party error tracking services and provides hooks for callbacks and monitoring.
