Integrate HangFire With ASP.NET Core

January 15, 2017 by Anuraj

aspnet core HangFire

This post is about integrating HangFire With ASP.NET Core. HangFire is an incredibly easy way to perform fire-and-forget, delayed and recurring jobs inside ASP.NET applications. CPU and I/O intensive, long-running and short-running jobs are supported. No Windows Service / Task Scheduler required. Backed by Redis, SQL Server, SQL Azure and MSMQ. Hangfire provides a unified programming model to handle background tasks in a reliable way and run them on shared hosting, dedicated hosting or in cloud. The product I am working has a feature of adding watermark to the images uploaded by users. Right now we are using a console app, which will monitor a directory in specified intervals and apply watermark to the newly uploaded images. But using HangFire we can schedule / execute the watermark opertation as a background task, instead of polling a directory for new images.
