What are good message queue options for nodejs? [closed]

Looking to use a message queue in a small web app I’m building with node.js. I looked at resque but not sure that’s appropriate. The goal is to push notifications to clients based on backend and other client actions with socketio. I could do this with just socketio but I thought maybe a proper message queue would make this cleaner and I wouldn’t have to reinvent the wheel.

What are the options out there?

Answer

you could use redis with the lightning fast node_redis client. It even has built-in pubsub semantics.
