Each Answer to this Q is separated by one/two green lines.
I am using apscheduler and I am trying to pass in parameters to the handler function that gets called when the scheduled job is launched:
from apscheduler.scheduler import Scheduler import time def printit(sometext): print "this happens every 5 seconds" print sometext sched = Scheduler() sched.start() sometext = "this is a passed message" sched.add_cron_job(printit(sometext), second="*/5") while True: time.sleep(1)
Doing this gives me the following error:
TypeError: func must be callable
Is it possible to pass parameters into the function handler. If not, are there any alternatives? Basically, I need each scheduled job to return a string that I pass in when I create the schedule. Thanks!
Since this is the first result I found when having the same problem, I’m adding an updated answer:
According to the docs for the current apscheduler (v3.3.0) you can pass along the function arguments in the
So in the case of OP it would be:
sched.add_job(printit, "cron", [sometext], second="*/5")
printit(sometext) is not a callable, it is the result of the call.
You can use:
Which is a callable to be called later which will probably do what you want.
