I want to write a program that keeps running in the background and performs a certain task at each hour of the day. How do I achieve this?
for production i would add cron or schedule
# Schedule Library imported import schedule import time # Functions setup def sudo_placement(): print("Get ready for Sudo Placement at Geeksforgeeks") def good_luck(): print("Good Luck for Test") def work(): print("Study and work hard") def bedtime(): print("It is bed time go rest") def geeks(): print("Shaurya says Geeksforgeeks") # Task scheduling # After every 10mins geeks() is called. schedule.every(10).minutes.do(geeks) # After every hour geeks() is called. schedule.every().hour.do(geeks) # Every day at 12am or 00:00 time bedtime() is called. schedule.every().day.at("00:00").do(bedtime) # After every 5 to 10mins in between run work() schedule.every(5).to(10).minutes.do(work) # Every monday good_luck() is called schedule.every().monday.do(good_luck) # Every tuesday at 18:00 sudo_placement() is called schedule.every().tuesday.at("18:00").do(sudo_placement) # Loop so that the scheduling task # keeps on running all time. while True: # Checks whether a scheduled task # is pending to run or not schedule.run_pending() time.sleep(1)
