txScheduler readme file

txScheduler is a python package that adds the ability to run "scheduled tasks" to Twisted applications.

While Twisted offers facilities to call a Python callable after a specified time interval (i.e. call this function in 5 seconds), it does not offer any way to make a call at a specified time (call this function at 5:00pm every weekday). This functionality is often desired (or required) in long-running processes like most Twisted daemons.

txScheduler offers just this functionality, allowing scheduling of Python tasks from within a Twisted app according to arbitrarily complex rules specified by the developer.
