Que vs Sidekiq: What are the differences?
Developers describe Que as "A Ruby job queue that uses PostgreSQL's advisory locks for speed and reliability". Que is a high-performance alternative to DelayedJob or QueueClassic that improves the reliability of your application by protecting your jobs with the same ACID guarantees as the rest of your data. On the other hand, Sidekiq is detailed as "Simple, efficient background processing for Ruby". Sidekiq uses threads to handle many jobs at the same time in the same process. It does not require Rails but will integrate tightly with Rails 3/4 to make background processing dead simple.
Que and Sidekiq belong to "Background Processing" category of the tech stack.
Que and Sidekiq are both open source tools. Sidekiq with 9.66K GitHub stars and 1.66K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Que with 1.47K GitHub stars and 119 GitHub forks.
