How it works

Anton is a queue manager build on top of bull that simplify the way to process hard jobs. The lifecycle in Anton is:

  • Register your tasks.
  • Register your transporters.
  • Create your jobs.
  • Send postback

After the bootstrap of Anton(loading tasks and transporters) you can create your jobs. When the jobs is done, with errors or not, the postback is called and notify you about the result of the job.

How to use

var Anton = require('anton2');
var emailJob =; // Load a simple job that send emails in batch.
var transporter =; // Load a simple transport for the postback information about the jobs finished. On this case send to your email.

var anton = new Anton();

//One time the jobs and transporters are loaded its loaded in memory every time.

.createJob('email.job', {
    email: {
        subject: 'Just a simple test',
        from: '',
        text: 'Hello {{name}}',
        html: '<html><body>Hello {{name}}</body></html>',
        data: [{ 
            to: '', 
            name: 'Marcos'
    credentials: {
        sendgrid_api_key: process.env.SENDGRID_API_KEY

// you can listen for jobs in the queue.['email.job'].on('completed', function(job){
    console.log(job.jobId, 'is complete');
});['email.job'].on('failed', function(job, error){
    console.log(job.jobId, 'is failed', error);
