gue

GoDev Coverage Status ReportCard License

Gue is Golang queue on top of PostgreSQL that uses transaction-level locks.

Originally this project used to be a fork of bgentry/que-go but because of some backward-compatibility breaking changes and original library author not being very responsive for PRs I turned fork into standalone project. Version 2 breaks internal backward-compatibility with the original project – DB table and all the internal logic (queries, algorithms) is completely rewritten.

The name Gue is yet another silly word transformation: Queue -> Que, Go + Que -> Gue.

Install

go get -u github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2

Additionally, you need to apply DB migration.

Usage Example

package main

import (
    "context"
    "encoding/json"
    "fmt"
    "log"
    "os"
    "time"

    "github.com/jackc/pgx/v4/pgxpool"
    "golang.org/x/sync/errgroup"

    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2"
    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2/adapter/pgxv4"
)

type printNameArgs struct {
    Name string
}

func main() {
    printName := func(j *gue.Job) error {
        var args printNameArgs
        if err := json.Unmarshal(j.Args, &args); err != nil {
            return err
        }
        fmt.Printf("Hello %s!\n", args.Name)
        return nil
    }

    pgxCfg, err := pgxpool.ParseConfig(os.Getenv("DATABASE_URL"))
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    pgxPool, err := pgxpool.ConnectConfig(context.Background(), pgxCfg)
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }
    defer pgxPool.Close()

    poolAdapter := pgxv4.NewConnPool(pgxPool)

    gc := gue.NewClient(poolAdapter)
    wm := gue.WorkMap{
        "PrintName": printName,
    }
    // create a pool w/ 2 workers
    workers := gue.NewWorkerPool(gc, wm, 2, gue.WithPoolQueue("name_printer"))

    ctx, shutdown := context.WithCancel(context.Background())

    // work jobs in goroutine
    g, gctx := errgroup.WithContext(ctx)
    g.Go(func() error {
        err := workers.Run(gctx)
        if err != nil {
            // In a real-world applications, use a better way to shut down
            // application on unrecoverable error. E.g. fx.Shutdowner from
            // go.uber.org/fx module.
            log.Fatal(err)
        }
        return err
    })

    args, err := json.Marshal(printNameArgs{Name: "vgarvardt"})
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    j := &gue.Job{
        Type:  "PrintName",
        Args:  args,
    }
    if err := gc.Enqueue(context.Background(), j); err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    j := &gue.Job{
        Type:  "PrintName",
        RunAt: time.Now().UTC().Add(30 * time.Second), // delay 30 seconds
        Args:  args,
    }
    if err := gc.Enqueue(context.Background(), j); err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    time.Sleep(30 * time.Second) // wait for while

    // send shutdown signal to worker
    shutdown()
    if err := g.Wait(); err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }
}

PostgreSQL drivers

Package supports several PostgreSQL drivers using adapter interface internally. Currently, adapters for the following drivers have been implemented:

pgx/v4

package main

import (
    "context"
    "log"
    "os"

    "github.com/jackc/pgx/v4/pgxpool"

    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2"
    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2/adapter/pgxv4"
)

func main() {
    pgxCfg, err := pgxpool.ParseConfig(os.Getenv("DATABASE_URL"))
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    pgxPool, err := pgxpool.ConnectConfig(context.Background(), pgxCfg)
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }
    defer pgxPool.Close()

    poolAdapter := pgxv4.NewConnPool(pgxPool)

    gc := gue.NewClient(poolAdapter)
    ...
}

pgx/v3

package main

import (
    "log"
    "os"

    "github.com/jackc/pgx"

    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2"
    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2/adapter/pgxv3"
)

func main() {
    pgxCfg, err := pgx.ParseURI(os.Getenv("DATABASE_URL"))
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }
    pgxPool, err := pgx.NewConnPool(pgx.ConnPoolConfig{
        ConnConfig:   pgxCfg,
    })
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }
    defer pgxPool.Close()

    poolAdapter := pgxv3.NewConnPool(pgxPool)

    gc := gue.NewClient(poolAdapter)
    ...
}

lib/pq

package main

import (
    "database/sql"
    "log"
    "os"

    _ "github.com/lib/pq" // register postgres driver

    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2"
    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2/adapter/libpq"
)

func main() {
    db, err := sql.Open("postgres", os.Getenv("DATABASE_URL"))
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }
    defer db.Close()

    poolAdapter := libpq.NewConnPool(db)

    gc := gue.NewClient(poolAdapter)
    ...
}

pg/v10

package main

import (
    "log"
    "os"

    "github.com/go-pg/pg/v10"

    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2"
    "github.com/vgarvardt/gue/v2/adapter/gopgv10"
)

func main() {
    opts, err := pg.ParseURL(os.Getenv("DATABASE_URL"))
    if err != nil {
        log.Fatal(err)
    }

    db := pg.Connect(opts)
    defer db.Close()

    poolAdapter := gopgv10.NewConnPool(db)

    gc := gue.NewClient(poolAdapter)
    ...
}

Logging

Package supports several logging libraries using adapter interface internally. Currently, adapters for the following drivers have been implemented:

  • NoOp (adapter.NoOpLogger) – default adapter that does nothing, so it is basically /dev/null logger
  • Stdlib log – adapter that uses log logger for logs output. Instantiate it with adapter.NewStdLogger(...).
  • Uber zap – adapter that uses go.uber.org/zap logger for logs output. Instantiate it with adapter.zap.New(...).

Testing

Linter and tests are running for every Pull Request, but it is possible to run linter and tests locally using docker and make.

Run linter: make link. This command runs liner in docker container with the project source code mounted.

Run tests: make test. This command runs project dependencies in docker containers if they are not started yet and runs go tests with coverage.
