Installing

huey can be installed from PyPI using pip.

$ pip install huey

huey has no dependencies outside the standard library, but currently the only fully-implemented storage backend it ships with requires redis. To use the redis backend, you will need to install the Redis python client:

$ pip install redis

If your tasks are IO-bound rather than CPU-bound, you might consider using the greenlet worker type. To use the greenlet workers, you need to install gevent:

pip install gevent

Using git

If you want to run the very latest, you can clone the source repo and install the library:

$ git clone https://github.com/coleifer/huey.git
$ cd huey
$ python setup.py install

You can run the tests using the test-runner:

$ python setup.py test
