Aldryn Celery is a wrapper application that installs and configures Celery in your project, exposing multiple Celery settings as environment variables for fine-tuning its configuration.
Once installed you will be able to begin developing with Celery in your local environment.
In order to use Celery on the Test or Live server:
- add Celery workers to your project's subscription
- redeploy both Test and Live servers
Once these steps have been completed, your project will be provisioned with:
- a RabbitMQ vhost
- environment variables (BROKER_URL, RABBITMQ_ERLANG_COOKIE)
- the additional worker processes to run in the background (celerybeat, celeryd, celerycam)
See How to Configure Celery in our documentation.
