Using Pub/Sub as a Laravel queue driver

  • Database
  • Redis
  • Beanstalk
  • Amazon SQS

Prepping in the Cloud

Back to Laravel

composer require kainxspirits/laravel-pubsub-queue
‘pubsub’ => [
‘driver’ => ‘pubsub’,
‘queue’ => env(‘PUBSUB_QUEUE’, ‘laravel-queue-1’),
‘project_id’ => env(‘PUBSUB_PROJECT_ID’, ‘insert-project-here’),
‘retries’ => 3,
‘request_timeout’ => 60,
‘default’ => env(‘QUEUE_CONNECTION’, ‘pubsub’),
export GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS=/path_to_credentials.json

Writing the code

php artisan make:job EchoOutput
Log::info(“Job sent at “.$this->message->format(‘Y-m-d H:i:s’));
EchoOutput::dispatch(new DateTime());

To the cloud and back!

php artisan serve
php artisan queue:work
