**IMPORTANT NOTE:** This project has not been actively maintained in a long time! You probably want to consider something like the Disque Redis module instead: https://github.com/antirez/disque
HotQueue is a Python library that allows you to use
Redis <http://code.google.com/p/redis/>_ as a message queue within your Python programs.
The main advantage of this model is that there is no queue server to run, other than Redis. This is particularly ideal if you're already using Redis as a datastore elsewhere. To install it, run::
pip install -U hotqueue
The best place to get started is
