Today I was very glad to see that lostboy has accepted the pull request of jaimeiniesta and myself on the workless gem. He also release the changes as version 1.1.0! It’s my first real try to help a Open Source project, and to see the changes being put in the gem that fast (after the original pull request was open for about 3 months) I was really excited! Workless is an addon for delayed_job (> 2.0.0) It is designed to be used when you’re using Heroku as a host and have the need to do background work with delayed job but you don’t want to leave the workers running all the time as it costs money. In this new version, this adds support for scaling using multiple workers. Many thanks to jaimeiniesta for add the multiple workers, I just updated the gem to use the new and improved heroku_api gem. I hope this new version makes your scaling needs for Heroku a bit better and nicer.
