⏱ Run loop¶

Tingbot has an internal run loop that it uses to schedule events.

tingbot.run(loop=None)¶

This function starts the run loop.

The optional loop function is called every 1/30th seconds.

@every(hours=0, minutes=0, seconds=0)¶

This decorator will call the function marked periodically, according to the time specified.

Example: Refreshing data every 10 minutes¶
@every(minutes=10)
def refresh_data():
    r = requests.get('http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather?q=London,uk&appid=bd82977b86bf27fb59a04b61b657fb6f')
    state['data'] = r.json()
@once(hours=0, minutes=0, seconds=0)¶

This decorator will call the function marked once, after the duration specified.

tingbot.RunLoop.call_after(callable)¶

Call function callable at the next possible moment from the run loop. This allows threads to communicate with the main run loop in a thread-safe fashion
