Ruby on Rails ActiveJob


Active Job is a framework for declaring jobs and making them run on a variety of queuing backends. These jobs can be everything from regularly scheduled clean-ups, to billing charges, to mailings. Anything that can be chopped up into small units of work and run in parallel, really.

Create the Job

class GuestsCleanupJob < ApplicationJob
  queue_as :default
  def perform(*guests)
    # Do something later

Enqueue the Job

# Enqueue a job to be performed as soon as the queuing system is free.
GuestsCleanupJob.perform_later guest
