# Django Background Tasks
Django Background Task is a databased-backed work queue for Django, loosely based around [Ruby's DelayedJob](https://github.com/tobi/delayed_job) library. This project was adopted and adapted from [lilspikey](https://github.com/lilspikey/) django-background-task.
To avoid conflicts on PyPI we renamed it to django-background-tasks (plural). For an easy upgrade from django-background-task to django-background-tasks, the internal module structure were left untouched.
In Django Background Task, all tasks are implemented as functions (or any other callable).
There are two parts to using background tasks:
* creating the task functions and registering them with the scheduler
* setup a cron task (or long running process) to execute the tasks
