Plugin to mimic a cron for use with the Hitch testing framework.

Project Description


HitchCron is a plugin for the Hitch test framework that lets you mimic the effect of having a cron run during your tests by running a command repeatedly.

Use with Hitch

Install like so:

$ hitch install hitchcron
# Service definition in engine's setUp:['Cron'] = hitchcron.CronService(['Django'].manage("trigger").command,      # Python list containing command + args
    every=1,                                                    # Run every 1 seconds

See this service in action at the DjangoRemindMe project.
