Background Workers

Jumpstart Pro makes adding background workers easy.

Choosing Your Background Workers

The Jumpstart Pro config admin lets you select your preferred tool for processing background jobs.

  • Async - Default, no dependencies
  • Sidekiq - Recommended, requires Redis
  • Sneakers - Requires RabbitMQ
  • Delayed Job
  • Sucker Punch - doesn't require a separate process, but doesn't allow scheduling
  • Que - Requires PostgreSQL

Active Job

After selecting your background worker of choice and saving your config, Jumpstart Pro will add the gem and configure ActiveJob to use it as the default for all environments.


If Sidekiq is enabled, we automatically enable the Sidekiq Web UI, restrict it to only admin users and add links to it in the navigation.
