Tech Stack powering Taskord

🐘 PHP and Laravel

PHP is our primary language and supported by the Laravel framework to make Taskord more fluid, fast and secured

πŸ¦‘ Laravel Livewire

Livewire is a full-stack framework for Laravel that makes building dynamic interfaces simple, without leaving the comfort of Laravel.

πŸ’Ύ MySQL

MySQL is our primary database which has around 25 tables which are powered by InnoDB storage engine

Ⓜ️ Memcached

Memcached is used extensively across all models to provide a blazing-fast experience, here is the shot of with and without Memcache.

Look at response total

Without Cache With Cache
560 160

🚦 Redis

Redis is used to

  • Send web notification
  • Send email notification
  • Queue Background Jobs

we initially used the database to queue those jobs, but it was too slow and inconsistent so we finally found an alternative and moved to Redis.

☯️ Laravel Horizon

Horizon provides a beautiful dashboard and code-driven configuration for your Laravel powered Redis queues. Horizon allows you to easily monitor key metrics of your queue system such as job throughput, runtime, and job failures.

Lightsail is an easy-to-use cloud platform that offers you everything needed to build an application or website, plus a cost-effective, monthly plan.

It feels more like a DigitalOcean inside AWS, It is more powerful and simple to manage

Amazon Simple Email Service (SES) is a cost-effective email service built on the reliable and scalable infrastructure that Amazon.com developed to serve its own customer base. With Amazon SES, you can send transactional email, marketing messages, or any other type of high-quality content.

Taskord has powerful notification preference where the user can turn off and on anytime.
