Django Enhancement Proposal 14: Background Workers
Django web applications require background task handling for activities like sending emails and interacting with external services. Although Django lacks a built-in solution for long-running tasks, the ecosystem offers various frameworks that integrate differently with Django. Unlike Laravel, which includes background workers, Django library maintainers must separately implement support for background task backends. This proposal aims to establish a standard interface and base implementation for managing long-running tasks in Django.
