Using Push Queues in the Development Server

This page describes how to test an application using push queues 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.

Note that:

  • The development server doesn't respect the rate and bucket-size attributes 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.
To disable push tasks from running in the development server, run the following command: --enable_task_running 0
