Honcho is a Sidekiq- and Resque-aware process manager.
Note: I didn't realize when I made this that there was already Honcho, a clone of Foreman in Python. Sorry for the confusion. I might end up renaming this.
Note 2: I ported this project to Rust and renamed it Froman. I'll leave this project up, but I likely won't spend any time improving it.
You can use it in place of Foreman if you need to manage several instances of Sidekiq and/or Resque and don't necessarily need them all to run at once.
We have a dozen apps all running Sidekiq (and some running Resque). In development, I don't need/want all of them running at once, so I built this.
This might be super useful if you are using Vagrant or VM for development and want to limit its RAM usage.
This is probably not useful in a production environment. But, let me know if you think it is!
Honcho is configured with a
honcho.yml file like this:
command_template: "bash -c \"eval \\\"\\$(rbenv init -)\\\" && rbenv shell \\$(cat .ruby-version) && %s\"" apps: check-ins: path: ../check-ins sidekiq: namespace: check-ins-sidekiq-development command: bundle exec sidekiq services: path: ../services resque: namespace: planning_center_development command: bundle exec resque-pool --environment development sidekiq: namespace: services-development.sidekiq command: bundle exec sidekiq
namespace is the Redis namespace to monitor for jobs.
gem install honcho
