What is Sidekiq?

Simple, efficient background processing for Ruby. Sidekiq uses threads to handle many jobs at the same time in the same process.

Sidekiq use cases

Developers using Ruby on Rails to build applications often have other tasks needed to be done asynchronously such as data processing, batch executions, etc. Sidekiq is the answer to this need being a framework that provides background processing for Ruby apps. With this, developers can process jobs in the background and improve efficiency. Sidekiq leverages Redis as an in-memory data structure and it can be used with Resque, also a Redis-based job scheduler.
