Background Tasks

Django vox can integrate with django-backgroundtasks if available. Doing so is pretty simple, and (particularly if you have to do database lookups inside get_contacts_for_notification) can significantly reduce the work for an initial request.


In order to get this set up, you first need to go install and configure django-backgroundtasks yourself. It’s fairly straightforward, but exactly how you want the background tasks run is a question only you can answer.

Once it is set up, replace the following:

from django_vox.models import VoxModel

with this:

from django_vox.extra.background import BackgroundVoxModel \
    as VoxModel


If your messages aren’t being sent out, there’s a good chance that your background tasks just aren’t getting run at all. Try running manage.py process_tasks or check your queued background tasks in the django admin.
