"BullMQ" is an advanced Redis-based queue for handling jobs in Node.js. It provides robustness and a rich set of features which allow you to handle jobs efficiently. Here's a basic example of how to create a queue, add jobs to it, and process those jobs using Bull MQ:
First, install BullMQ via npm:
Then, create a new file
queue.js and write the following code:
In this example, we created a queue called 'myQueue' and added a job 'myJob' with some data ('foo: bar').
Then, in another file
worker.js, you can process jobs from this queue like this:
In this worker file, we're creating a worker that listens for jobs on 'myQueue'. When a job appears, the worker logs the job's data.
Remember, both the queue and worker must connect to the same Redis instance. If your Redis server isn't running on the default local configuration (localhost:6379), you'll need to provide connection details.
For more advanced usage, including priority queues, scheduling, delayed jobs, and more, refer to the BullMQ documentation.
