Celery import and SQS connection issue


I'm trying to follow the documentation to get started with celery, but running into hard to debug problems with the sample code. I can't tell if I'm hitting two sides of the same problem, or two unique problems. I can make a connection to the SQS queue through the shell, but not with django. I don't know what the relation is of that behavior to the problems importing Celery vs importing task.

The "Getting Started" guide here: <a href="http://celery.github.com/celery/getting-started/first-steps-with-celery.html#running-the-celery-worker-server" rel="nofollow">http://celery.github.com/celery/getting-started/first-steps-with-celery.html#running-the-celery-worker-server</a>

shows the code

from celery import Celery

This code works if I run it from a python shell, however, if I do that inside my django project in tasks.py in eclipse, I get an error Unresolved Import: Celery.

There is a separate guide here: <a href="http://celery.github.com/celery/django/first-steps-with-django.html" rel="nofollow">http://celery.github.com/celery/django/first-steps-with-django.html</a> for django, which instead uses

from celery import task

Which resolves fine, however, when I continue the tutorial and call

add.delay(2, 2)

I get a connection failure, and it looks like maybe it is trying to still use rabbitmq instead of the SQS I have my django project setup to use (which works, I can see the SQS queues from amazon's web interface, and I can make the connection if I do everything from the shell using from celery import Celery). Here is the stack trace if it is relevant:

In settings.py, I have the BROKER_URL correctly configured with my SQS url (and no forward slashes in secret code, which apparently has been a problem in the past).


<ol><li>Why does "from celery import Celery" work from a python shell, but not in eclipse in the django project?</li> <li>Why does following the instructions in the django tutorial lead to the connection refused error (and does the amqplib references mean it is trying to use rabbitmq instead of SQS)?</li> </ol>


How do you call the task, are you using manage.py shell?

Did you add import djcelery; djcelery.setup_loader() to the top of your settings.py?

The API's for celery and django-celery are different now because django-celery is lagging behind. Celery 3.1 will support Django out of the box, so the new API can be used everywhere.

On the eclipse thing that is interesting. Is it possible that Eclipse uses static analysis to find the symbols in a module? In that case, does it help to add the following to the celery/<strong>init</strong>.py file:

__all__ = ['Celery']
