Project description

taskrunner runs your methods until they stop failing.


taskrunner is a crude way to force your methods to complete. This is particularly useful when functions can be expected to throw exceptions but shouldn’t stop execution. Effectively, taskrunner catches all exceptions and makes sure that the result is not in a list of excluded return values.


taskrunner is available via pip:

$ pip install taskrunner


from taskrunner import TaskRunner

def some_function_that_may_throw(some_argument, another_argument):
    # Do something

task_runner = TaskRunner()
result = task_runner.run_until_complete(target=some_function_that_may_throw, args=('123','456'))
print(result) # Hopefully something useful
