No Description

Install & Use

Add the following code to your project's shard.yml under:

dependencies to use in production
- OR -
development_dependencies to use in development

  github: bcardiff/



This library allows you to define a program in term of tasks. Each task invocation has parameters and a set of dependencies. The dependencies are tasks that must be executed before.

The application is executed by an engine. Currently there are two: Tasko::MemoryEngine and Tasko::RedisEngine. The latter allows you define a worker that can be stopped or crashed without loosing the task invocation tree. It also allows you to have multiple worker instances to spread the load and execute them concurrently. Each task will be executed by one worker.

When a task is executing, besides the params it receives a Tasko::Context that allows you to create and schedule new tasks invocations. The changes made via this context are atomic.

Although the execution of the task itself is not atomic and might be interrupted at any point, making the changes via the context atomic is enough to create resilient and resumable programs.

It is convenient to have a Key-Value Store were each task invocation can generate data that dependant tasks might need. Tasko::KVStore is a base class you can use to build your own Key-Value Store that use the Tasko::Engine of your application: either memory or redis.


  1. Add the dependency to your shard.yml:

        github: bcardiff/
      redis: # if you want to use Tasko::RedisEngine
        github: stefanwille/crystal-redis
  2. Run shards install


require "tasko"
require "tasko/redis" # if you want to use Tasko::RedisEngine
