This page describes how to test your task queue application in the development server. When your app is running in the development server, tasks are automatically executed at the appropriate time just as in production.
- The development server doesn't respect the
bucket-sizeattributes of your queues. As a result, tasks are executed as close to their ETA as possible. Setting a rate of 0 doesn't prevent tasks from being executed automatically.
- The development server doesn't preserve queue state across restarts.
