So after more than a year of thinking/pondering/procrastinating I found myself with 2 spare hours (Wife busy will 9:30 and me not wanting to go to the Gym…. the stars aligned!) and took advantage of it to open source Tivix’s first application.
Its not the sexiest, but makes running python crons / automated tasks in Django hopefully a tad bit easier. If nothing else someone can extend this app and make it even better.
Here is it: https://github.com/Tivix/django-cron
Hopefully we’ll open source 2-3 other applications / code snippets which we find really useful as time goes on. This a small way in which we “give back” to the open source community (Django and Wordpress I am looking at you!) on whose shoulders we’ve built some great products for some great companies!
