The easiest way to use a job queue in your Next.js project

Usage no npm install needed!

<script type="module">
  import serverlessQueueNextjs from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/@serverless-queue/nextjs';



The easiest way to integrate ServerlessQueue with your Next.Js project.

Getting Started

  1. Create a free ServerlessQueue account and save your token as an environment variable called SERVERLESS_QUEUE_TOKEN in your .env.local file
  1. Add this library to your project
npm install --save @serverless-queue/nextjs
  1. Create your first queue by creating a new api route and defining the worker function
// pages/api/queues/example.js
import { Queue } from "@serverless-queue/nextjs"

export default Queue(
    async (job) => {
        // implement the background job here
  1. Enqueue a job by importing your new queue and calling .enqueue on it with the payload needed to complete the job
// pages/api/example.js
import exampleQueue from "./queues/example"

export default async (req, res) => {
    // handle logic that can be completed as part of the request

    // enqueue a job to complete work 
    // that should be completed asynchronously after the request
    await exampleQueue.enqueue({ field: "value" })

End-to-End Encryption

Serverless Queue supports encrypting the job payload data so that our servers never have access to potentially sensitive information. To enable this feature simply set a 32 character encryption key using the environment variable SERVERLESS_QUEUE_ENCRYPTION_KEY and the client library will automatically encrypt and decrypt the payload using this key.
