The scheduler that nobody wants but every application needs.
🚀 The scheduler that simply works. 🚀
Documentation: https://asyncz.tarsild.io 📚
Source Code: https://github.com/tarsil/asyncz
Asyncz is a scheduler for any ASGI application that needs to have those complicated scheduled operations with the best of what pydantic can offer.
Nowadays using async frameworks with python is somewhat common and becoming even more mainstream. A lot of applications usually need a complex stack of technologies to fullfil their needs and directly or indirectly, a scheduler.
There are great frameworks out there that do the task extremely well, the best example is APScheduler, which is where Asyncz came from.
To be even more honest, Asyncz is a revamp of APScheduler. Without the APScheduler there is no Asyncz, so much that even the APScheduler tests are used within asyncz. That is how great APScheduler is!
So what was the reason why recreating another similar version of APScheduler? Well, it is not entirely the same thing. Asyncz was designed to work only with ASGI and AsyncIO as well as integrating pydantic and bring the modern python into the table.
APScheduler is widely used by millions of python developers and Asyncz does not aim to replace it, instead is a more focused and optimised solution for async and ASGI frameworks out there.
See the vendors for more details.
We all struggle with the logging and the configurations and with that in mind Asyncz comes with natice support for loguru.
This will make the logging a lot easier to understand and clear to read.
Async and ASGI
What does this mean? Well, Asyncz does not need to run inside any specific framework, actually you can use it completely indepent from any framework as well as inside ASGI frameworks such as Esmerald, FastAPI, Starlette, Starlite, Quart... You can pick one and go for it.
Asyncz comes with special support to Esmerald for the simple reason that the author is the same but it can be added more support. If you are interested in adding support to your favourite frameworks then see the contributing section.
Like APScheduler, Asyncz also brings four kinds of components:
- Python 3.7+
Asyncz wouldn't be possible without two giants:
$ pip install asyncz
The right decisions
Well, Asyncz is intentionally designed for specific systems and already helps you out with some of those questions.
- Schedulers - Natively only supports the AsyncIOScheduler.
- Triggers - Here it will depend of the periocidity of our tasks. Example:
- CronTrigger - UNIX like cron and gives you the same feeling as scheduling a task on a native UNIX like based system.
- DateTrigger - When you need to run a task once on a specific point of time.
- IntervalTrigger - When you need to run tasks in specific intervals of time.
- OrTrigger/AndTrigger - If you would like to combine more than one trigger (cron, interval and date) together.
- Stores - Natively only supports redis, mongo and memory.
- Executors - Natively only supports AsyncIOExecutor, ThreadPoolExecutor and ProcessPoolExecutor.
Sometimes having a lot of options makes the decision making very hard and Asyncz is intentionally designed and driven to simplify and for specific use cases but is not limited to those. In every section you have the option of uilding your own stores, executors, triggers and schedulers.
Configuring the scheduler
Due its simplificy, Asyncz provides some ways of configuring the scheduler for you.
from asyncz.schedulers.asyncio import AsyncIOScheduler scheduler = AsyncIOScheduler()
from asyncz.schedulers import AsyncIOScheduler scheduler = AsyncIOScheduler()
Initialize the rest of the application after the
More details can be found with more thorough explanations.
This is in simple terms and in a nutshell how to start with Asyncz quickly. For more information, details and examples how to leverage Asyncz simply navigate through the documentation and have fun 😁🎉.
Asyncz currently supports the Esmerald framework and brings some batteries that are currently used by the framework and leveraging Asyncz.
If you wish to have support to any other framework such as FastAPI, Starlite, Starlette or literally any other, check the contributing section and see how you can do it.
Currently there are no sponsors of Asyncz but you can financially help and support the author though GitHub sponsors and become a Special one or a Legend.
