In this tutorial, we will learn How To Repeatedly Execute A Function Every x Seconds there are different ways to do the same that we will discuss here like using time.sleep(), sched module, apscheduler module, and threading module.
Calling function after every x seconds we use different ways to do so that we are going to discuss here.
Using time.sleep() method
It is the most common way to execute it for execution following the code given below where we need to import the time module to implement it.
import time while True: # Code executed here time.sleep(60)
Using Sched Module
It also uses a time module for executing the same in addition to that it also used a sched module too t]and to implement the same using this follow the code given below.
import sched, time s = sched.scheduler(time.time, time.sleep) def do_something(sc): print("Doing stuff...") # do your stuff sc.enter(60, 1, do_something, (sc,)) s.enter(60, 1, do_something, (s,)) s.run()
Using scheduler module
This is also a very useful way to execute it along with some extra features that we do not require in this but it does the task that we want to complete for the same code is given below.
from apscheduler. schedulers. background import Blocking Scheduler def print_t(): pass sched = Blocking Scheduler() sched. add_job(print_t, 'interval', seconds =60) #will do the print_t work for every 60 seconds sched.start()
we can use the threading module to execute the same as per our choice as we will see in the example code given below.
import threading import time class RepeatedTimer(object): def __init__(self, interval, function, *args, **kwargs): self._timer = None self.interval = interval self.function = function self.args = args self.kwargs = kwargs self.is_running = False self.next_call = time.time() self.start() def _run(self): self.is_running = False self.start() self.function(*self.args, **self.kwargs) def start(self): if not self.is_running: self.next_call += self.interval self._timer = threading.Timer(self.next_call - time.time(), self._run) self._timer.start() self.is_running = True def stop(self): self._timer.cancel() self.is_running = False
