Questions: Has task run? Is running task completed?

See original GitHub issue

Issue Description

How can i check if a task has been called/run/completed?

Currently i looked into HUEY.pending() and check if there the task has a result.

First: How can i easier get all pending task IDs? I do this:

def get_pending_ids_by_func(task_func):
    task_pkg_path1 = "%s.%s" % (task_func.task_class.__module__, task_func.task_class.__name__)
    for pending_task in HUEY.pending(limit=None):
        task_pkg_path2 = "%s.%s" % (pending_task.__module__,
        if task_pkg_path1 == task_pkg_path2:
    return pending_ids

Then: I have the task ID and what to check if the task finished. Currently i check if result is not EmptyData, e.g.:

result =
if result is not EmptyData:
    print("Task %r completed" % task_id)
    print("Task %r return EmptyData -> not completed." % task_id)

But it seems that this will not work, if the task return something and not return None

This isn’t about testing Huey himself. It’s about testing the whole stack. That includes huey and redis as backend…

In my case it’s a docker compose project and django, huey, redis (and more) services are in separate containers…
