Python job scheduling for humans.

An in-process scheduler for periodic jobs that uses the builder pattern for configuration. Schedule lets you run Python functions (or any other callable) periodically at pre-determined intervals using a simple, human-friendly syntax.

Inspired by

Adam Wiggins' 
_ article
"Rethinking Cron" 
_ and the
_ Ruby module.


  • A simple to use API for scheduling jobs.
  • Very lightweight and no external dependencies.
  • Excellent test coverage.
  • Tested on Python 2.7, 3.5, and 3.6


.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install schedule

.. code-block:: python

import schedule
import time

def job(): print("I'm working...")

schedule.every(10) schedule.every() schedule.every()"10:30").do(job) schedule.every(5).to(10) schedule.every() schedule.every()"13:15").do(job) schedule.every()":17").do(job)

while True: schedule.run_pending() time.sleep(1)
