Talk to the at(1) daemon, to schedule jobs for later

Project description

This tiny library allows you to talk to the at(1) system, available on most UNIX machines, to schedule jobs to be run later.

Using at(1) can be much more light-weight than running a full-fledged job-processing system such as Celery if you are running very few jobs, however the performance will be much lower if you are running a considerate amount of tasks.

Example

import unix_at

job = unix_at.submit_shell_job(['touch', '/some/file'])
unix_at.cancel_job(job)
job = unix_at.submit_python_job(os.mkdir, 'now + 1 hour', '/some/dir')
