Plugin / Async Background Worker




Async Background Worker, more information please visit this page

Sample Usage

What is it ?

WordPress background worker plugin that enable WordPress to interact with beanstalkd work queue.

Why we need a worker ?

We can run a very long task in the background, for example we need to import 100.000 row into WordPress databases. Instead of doing the 100.000 import in one job, we can separate the job into many smaller job which is safer.


Make sure you have WP CLI installed on your system

Add job to queue

  1. Add new job to new worker queue using add_async_job command

    $job = new stdClass();  
    // the function to run  
    $job->function = 'function_to_execute_on_background';  
    // our user entered data  
    $job->user_data = array('data'=>'some_data');
  2. Implement function

    function function_to_execute_on_background($data) {
        //do something usefull
        echo "Background job executed successfully\n";
  3. Run wp background-worker listen


  • wp background-worker
    Run Async Background Worker once.

  • wp background-worker listen
