What's a Task Queue?

Task queues are used as a mechanism to distribute work across threads or machines.

A task queue's input is a unit of work, called a task, dedicated worker processes then constantly monitor the queue for new work to perform.

Celery communicates via messages, usually using a broker to mediate between clients and workers. To initiate a task a client puts a message on the queue, the broker then delivers the message to a worker.

A Celery system can consist of multiple workers and brokers, giving way to high availability and horizontal scaling.

Celery is written in Python, but the protocol can be implemented in any language. In addition to Python there's node-celery_ for Node.js, a

PHP client
,
gocelery
for golang, and rusty-celery_ for Rust.

Language interoperability can also be achieved by using webhooks in such a way that the client enqueues an URL to be requested by a worker.

What do I need?

Celery version 5.0.2 runs on,

  • Python (3.6, 3.7, 3.8)
  • PyPy3.6 (7.6)

This is the next version of celery which will support Python 3.6 or newer.

If you're running an older version of Python, you need to be running an older version of Celery:

  • Python 2.6: Celery series 3.1 or earlier.
  • Python 2.5: Celery series 3.0 or earlier.
  • Python 2.4: Celery series 2.2 or earlier.
  • Python 2.7: Celery 4.x series.

Celery is a project with minimal funding, so we don't support Microsoft Windows. Please don't open any issues related to that platform.

Celery is usually used with a message broker to send and receive messages. The RabbitMQ, Redis transports are feature complete, but there's also experimental support for a myriad of other solutions, including using SQLite for local development.

Celery can run on a single machine, on multiple machines, or even across datacenters.

Get Started

If this is the first time you're trying to use Celery, or you're new to Celery 5.0.2 coming from previous versions then you should read our getting started tutorials:

  • First steps with Celery

    Tutorial teaching you the bare minimum needed to get started with Celery.

Celery is...

  • Simple

    Celery is easy to use and maintain, and does not need configuration files.

    It has an active, friendly community you can talk to for support, like at our

    mailing-list
    _, or the IRC channel.

    Here's one of the simplest applications you can make::

    from celery import Celery
    
    

    app = Celery('hello', broker='amqp://[email protected]//')

    @app.task def hello(): return 'hello world'

  • Highly Available

    Workers and clients will automatically retry in the event of connection loss or failure, and some brokers support HA in way of Primary/Primary or Primary/Replica replication.

  • Fast

    A single Celery process can process millions of tasks a minute, with sub-millisecond round-trip latency (using RabbitMQ, py-librabbitmq, and optimized settings).

  • Flexible

    Almost every part of Celery can be extended or used on its own, Custom pool implementations, serializers, compression schemes, logging, schedulers, consumers, producers, broker transports, and much more.

It supports...

- **Message Transports**

- RabbitMQ_, Redis_, Amazon SQS
  • Concurrency

    • Prefork, Eventlet_, gevent_, single threaded (solo)
  • Result Stores

    • AMQP, Redis
    • memcached
    • SQLAlchemy, Django ORM
    • Apache Cassandra, IronCache, Elasticsearch
  • Serialization

    • pickle, json, yaml, msgpack.
    • zlib, bzip2 compression.
    • Cryptographic message signing.

Framework Integration

Celery is easy to integrate with web frameworks, some of which even have integration packages:

+--------------------+------------------------+
| `Django`_          | not needed             |
+--------------------+------------------------+
| `Pyramid`_         | `pyramid_celery`_      |
+--------------------+------------------------+
| `Pylons`_          | `celery-pylons`_       |
+--------------------+------------------------+
| `Flask`_           | not needed             |
+--------------------+------------------------+
| `web2py`_          | `web2py-celery`_       |
+--------------------+------------------------+
| `Tornado`_         | `tornado-celery`_      |
+--------------------+------------------------+

The integration packages aren't strictly necessary, but they can make development easier, and sometimes they add important hooks like closing database connections at

fork
.
