schedule_ module

Utilities for scheduling jobs.


AsyncJob class

AsyncJob(
    interval,
    scheduler=None
)

A periodic job as used by :class:Scheduler.

:param interval: A quantity of a certain time unit :param scheduler: The :class:Scheduler <Scheduler> instance that this job will register itself with once it has been fully configured in :meth:Job.do().

Every job runs at a given fixed time interval that is defined by:

  • a :meth:time unit <Job.second>
  • a quantity of time units defined by interval

A job is usually created and returned by :meth:Scheduler.every method, which also defines its interval.

Superclasses

  • schedule.Job

async_run method

AsyncJob.async_run()

Async Job.run.


AsyncScheduler class

AsyncScheduler()

Objects instantiated by the :class:Scheduler <Scheduler> are factories to create jobs, keep record of scheduled jobs and handle their execution.

Superclasses

  • schedule.Scheduler

async_run_all method

AsyncScheduler.async_run_all(
    delay_seconds=0
)

Async Scheduler.run_all.


async_run_pending method

AsyncScheduler.async_run_pending()

Async Scheduler.run_pending.


every method

AsyncScheduler.every(
    interval=1
)

Schedule a new periodic job of type AsyncJob.


CancelledError class

CancelledError(
    *args,
    **kwargs
)

Thrown for the operation to be cancelled.

Superclasses

  • builtins.BaseException
  • builtins.Exception
  • concurrent.futures._base.CancelledError
  • concurrent.futures._base.Error

ScheduleManager class

ScheduleManager(
    scheduler=None
)

Class that manages schedule.Scheduler.


async_start method

ScheduleManager.async_start(
    sleep=1
)

Async run pending jobs in a loop.


async_task property

Current async task.


async_task_running property

Whether the async task is running.


done_callback method

ScheduleManager.done_callback(
    async_task
)

Callback run when the async task is finished.


every method

ScheduleManager.every(
    *args,
    to=None,
    tags=None
)

Create a new job that runs every interval units of time.

*args can include at most four different arguments: interval, unit, start_day, and at, in the strict order:

See the package schedule for more details.

Usage

>>> import datetime
>>> import pytz
>>> import vectorbt as vbt

>>> def job_func(message="I'm working..."):
...     print(message)

>>> my_manager = vbt.ScheduleManager()

>>> # add jobs
>>> my_manager.every().do(job_func, message="Hello")
Every 1 second do job_func(message='Hello') (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-18 19:06:47)

>>> my_manager.every(10, 'minutes').do(job_func)
Every 10 minutes do job_func() (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-18 19:16:46)

>>> my_manager.every('hour').do(job_func)
Every 1 hour do job_func() (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-18 20:06:46)

>>> my_manager.every('10:30').do(job_func)
Every 1 day at 10:30:00 do job_func() (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-19 10:30:00)

>>> my_manager.every('day', '10:30').do(job_func)
Every 1 day at 10:30:00 do job_func() (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-19 10:30:00)

>>> my_manager.every('day', datetime.time(9, 30, tzinfo=pytz.utc)).do(job_func)
Every 1 day at 10:30:00 do job_func() (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-19 10:30:00)

>>> my_manager.every('monday').do(job_func)
Every 1 week do job_func() (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-22 19:06:46)

>>> my_manager.every('wednesday', '13:15').do(job_func)
Every 1 week at 13:15:00 do job_func() (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-24 13:15:00)

>>> my_manager.every('minute', ':17').do(job_func)
Every 1 minute at 00:00:17 do job_func() (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-18 19:07:17)

>>> my_manager.start()

You can still use the chained approach as done by schedule:

>>> my_manager.every().minute.at(':17').do(job_func)
Every 1 minute at 00:00:17 do job_func() (last run: [never], next run: 2021-03-18 19:07:17)

scheduler property

Scheduler.


start method

ScheduleManager.start(
    sleep=1
)

Run pending jobs in a loop.


start_in_background method

ScheduleManager.start_in_background(
    **kwargs
)

Run ScheduleManager.async_start() in the background.


stop method

ScheduleManager.stop()

Stop the async task.
