Additional explanation :

schedule: Lightweight scheduled task scheduling Library . Can complete every minute , Every hour , Every day , What day of the week , Scheduled tasks for a specific date

import schedule
import time
def job():
    print("I'm working...")
schedule.every(10)                #  Every ten minutes , Do it once 
schedule.every()                     #  Every other hour , Do it once 
schedule.every()"10:30").do(job)          #  Daily 10:30, Do it once 
schedule.every(5).to(10)             #  every other 5 To 10 God , Do it once 
schedule.every()                   #  Every Monday , At this moment , Do it once 
schedule.every()"13:15").do(job)    #  Three days a week 13:15, Do it once 
while True: #  Dead cycle , Always check whether the above tasks can be executed 
    schedule.run_pending()   # run_pending  Run runnable tasks 
#  If the function has arguments , Just add the parameters directly , As shown below 
import schedule
import time
def job(name):
    print("her name is : ", name)
name = xiaona
schedule.every(10), name)
schedule.every(), name)
schedule.every()"10:30").do(job, name)
schedule.every(5).to(10), name)
schedule.every(), name)
schedule.every()"13:15").do(job, name)
while True:

schedule The limitations of :

1、 Functions that need to run regularly job It should not be of the dead loop type , in other words , This thread should have an exit after execution . One is that the thread should die , Can be a very difficult problem ; Second, the next scheduled task will start a new thread , More times of execution will lead to disaster

2、 If schedule The time interval of is set higher than job The execution time is short , It will also cause a disaster due to thread accumulation , in other words , I job The execution time of is 1 Hours , But what I set for the scheduled task is 5 Minutes at a time , That will keep piling up threads
