Configuring and scheduling background tasks
Ghostwriter uses the Django Q project for queuing and managing background tasks. Django Q hands off tasks to the Redis server (already installed and running in Docker).
Tasks are defined in the
tasks.pyfile. These tasks can be executed on demand or on a schedule.
Tasks can be queued in a few different ways:
- Schedule tasks to execute in the future and on a recurring schedule with Django Q.
- Use the buttons (various) in Ghostwriter's web interface.
- Use a REST API endpoint (not yet available).
