Automatic processing of jobs?

I just want to confirm, when I add a job to the queue table I have to manually start "bin/delayed_job" to get the job processed? Is there any way to configure the project so jobs start being processed after "rails s"?

(The fact that I needed to run the script manually wasn't obvious from the I only realised after a fair amount of debugging. Maybe call it out better? Just my opinion.)

The worker process isn't part of your web process, which is why it doesn't (and can't) start when you run "rails s".

You could look into something like foreman, which uses a Procfile to define a group of app processes to bring up at once.
