Simple scheduled tasks for Pyramid.

Project Description

pyramid_cron - Simple scheduled tasks for Pyramid

Scott Torborg - Cart Logic

Provides the ability to register simple tasks (callback functions) for scheduled execution with a cron-like syntax.

Why it’s better than a typical task queue like Celery, Resque, etc:

  • No user permissions to worry about: everything is run inside a web request, so the task has all the same permissions as your web app.
  • Very simple setup, no additional daemons required.
  • The API follows Pyramid idioms.

Why it’s worse:

  • It’s not well suited to long-running tasks: everything is run inside a web request.
  • It does not distribute jobs across workers.
  • It does not allow for prioritization of jobs, or have any support for non-synchronous tasks.
