Nightly is a simple utility for executing a command every evening.

Project description


Nightly is a simple utility for executing a command every evening. Think of it as a poor person's Cron that only does one thing with a less-flexible scheduling system. I built this to handle kicking off automated scripts inside a few Docker projects.


  • Python 3.6+
  • Python pip


pip install nightly


The following will run /path/to/ every day at 4am:

# nightly --when 4:00 /path/to/
