A simple scheduling system that lets you define jobs that get performed at various intervals
About Bambu Cron
Bambu Cron makes it easy to define scheduled tasks that can run as rarely as once a year os often as once a minute. The syadmin only needs to add an extra line to the crontab file belonging to the user with permission to perform actions on the site, and and Bambu Cron will do the rest.
Jobs are defined very simply, and a flag is set to alert the system that a job is running, so that frequent jobs that take longer than a minute to run, don't run in parallel.
About Bambu Tools 2.0
This is part of a toolset called Bambu Tools. It's being moved from a namespace of
bambu to its own
'root-level' package, along with all the other tools in the set. If you're upgrading from a version prior
to 2.0, please make sure to update your code to use
bambu_cron rather than
Install the package via Pip:
pip install bambu-cron
Add it to your
INSTALLED_APPS = ( ... 'bambu_cron' )
manage.py syncdb or
manage.py migrate to setup the database tables.
You define cron jobs and register them in a file called cron.py, which you add to your
Django app. Only cron.py files found within an app referenced in the
will be discovered.
import bambu_cron class EmailDigestJob(bambu_cron.CronJob): frequency = bambu_cron.frequency.DAY def run(self, logger): # Send a digest email on a daily basis ... bambu_cron.site.register(EmailDigestJob)
This registers the
EmailDigestJob job. Once registered, you'll need to call
python manage.py cron --setup to allow Bambu Cron to store details of the job in the database.
