This method schedules jobs to be run on selected intervals. The execution of the job starts after the given delay, or on start_date if specified. After that, the job will be executed again after the specified delay. The start_date parameter can be given as a date/datetime object or text. See the Date-based scheduling section for more examples on that.
from datetime import datetime from apscheduler.scheduler import Scheduler # Start the scheduler sched = Scheduler() sched.start() def job_function(): print "Hello World" # Schedule job_function to be called every two hours sched.add_interval_job(job_function, hours=2) # The same as before, but start after a certain time point sched.add_interval_job(job_function, hours=2, start_date='2010-10-10 09:30')
As a convenience, there is an alternative syntax for using interval-based schedules. The interval_schedule() decorator can be attached to any function, and has the same syntax as add_interval_job(), except for the func parameter, obviously.
from apscheduler.scheduler import Scheduler # Start the scheduler sched = Scheduler() sched.start() # Schedule job_function to be called every two hours @sched.interval_schedule(hours=2) def job_function(): print "Hello World"
If you need to unschedule the decorated functions, you can do it this way:
