Disque vs simplehttp: What are the differences?
Developers describe Disque as "In-memory, distributed job queue". Disque is an ongoing experiment to build a distributed, in-memory, message broker. Its goal is to capture the essence of the "Redis as a jobs queue" use case, which is usually implemented using blocking list operations, and move it into an ad-hoc, self-contained, scalable, and fault tolerant design, with simple to understand properties and guarantees, but still resembling Redis in terms of simplicity, performance, and implementation as a C non-blocking networked server. On the other hand, simplehttp is detailed as "A family of libraries and daemons built upon libevent that make high performance HTTP servers simple and straightforward to write". .
Disque and simplehttp belong to "Message Queue" category of the tech stack.
Disque and simplehttp are both open source tools. Disque with 7.37K GitHub stars and 516 forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than simplehttp with 480 GitHub stars and 73 GitHub forks.
