Kue vs RSMQ: What are the differences?
Developers describe Kue as "Kue is a priority job queue backed by redis, built for node.js". Kue is a feature rich priority job queue for node.js backed by redis. A key feature of Kue is its clean user-interface for viewing and managing queued, active, failed, and completed jobs. On the other hand, RSMQ is detailed as "A lightweight message queue for Node.js that requires no dedicated queue server. Just a Redis server". tl;dr: If you run a Redis server and currently use Amazon SQS or a similar message queue you might as well use this fast little replacement. Using a shared Redis server multiple Node.js processes can send / receive messages.
Kue and RSMQ are primarily classified as "Background Processing" and "Message Queue" tools respectively.
Kue and RSMQ are both open source tools. It seems that Kue with 8.74K GitHub stars and 880 forks on GitHub has more adoption than RSMQ with 1.07K GitHub stars and 74 GitHub forks.
