Run Your Laravel App Code Asynchronously with Laravel Async

Laravel Async is a package that provides a straightforward way to run code asynchronous and parallel based on the Spatie Async wrapper for the Laravel application.


You can install the Laravel Async package by using Composer:

composer require vxm/laravel-async

The package will automatically register itself.

You can publish the config file (optional) with:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="VXM\Async\AsyncServiceProvider" --tag="config"


Run async code

After installation, now you can try running async code via the Async facade:

use Async;

for ($i = 1; $i < 20; $i++) {
    Async::run(function () use ($i) {

        return $i;

var_dump(implode(', ', Async::wait()));

// Output value may be like:
// string(65) "5, 2, 1, 14, 4, 6, 7, 8, 19, 16, 12, 18, 13, 3, 10, 9, 11, 17, 15"

An async job can be a callable class, anonymous function, or Laravel callback:

use Async;

// run with anonymous function:
Async::run(function() {
    // Do a thing

// run with class@method

// call default `handle` method if method not set.

You can run multiple jobs one time and wait until all are done.

use Async;


// Another way:


$results = Async::wait(); // result return from jobs above

Event listeners

When creating asynchronous processes, you can add the following event hooks:

use Async;

Async::run(function () {

    return 123;
}, [
    'success' => function ($output) { 
        // `$output` of job in this case is `123`.
    'timeout' => function () { 
        // A job took too long to finish.
    'error' => function (\Throwable $exception) {
        // When an exception is thrown from job, it's caught and passed here.

// Another way:
Async::run('AsyncJobClass@handleMethod', [
    'success' => 'AsyncJobEventListener@handleSuccess',
    'timeout' => 'AsyncJobEventListener@handleTimeout',
    'error' => 'AsyncJobEventListener@handleError'

    ['AsyncJobClassA@handleMethod', ['success' => 'AsyncJobEventListenerA@handleSuccess']],
    ['AsyncJobClassB@handleMethod', ['success' => 'AsyncJobEventListenerB@handleSuccess']],
    ['AsyncJobClassC@handleMethod', ['success' => 'AsyncJobEventListenerC@handleSuccess']]

This package has many great features and options available with code examples. If you want to learn more about this package you can visit its documentation and source code on Github.
