  2. Enjoy

Demo installation


$ git clone --depth 1 -b master mmc
$ cd mmc
$ docker build -t mmc .
$ docker run -it -d -p 8000:8000 --name mmc mmc
$ docker exec -i -t mmc /bin/bash
$ cd /mmc_demo/


$ git clone --depth 1 -b master mmc
$ cd mmc
$ vagrant up --provider virtualbox
$ vagrant ssh
$ cd /mmc_demo/

OS X/Linux

$ sudo apt-get install -y virtualenvwrapper || brew install pyenv-virtualenvwrapper
$ source /usr/share/virtualenvwrapper/ || source /usr/local/bin/
$ mkvirtualenv django-mmc
$ git clone --depth 1
$ cd django-mmc
$ python develop
$ cd demo
$ pip install -r ../requirements/dev.txt
$ python syncdb --noinput
$ python createsuperuser --username admin --email
$ python test_command >& /dev/null
$ python test_command_noargs >& /dev/null
$ python test_command_error >& /dev/null
$ python test_command_killed >& /dev/null
$ python runserver >& /dev/null &

Open app in browser (login and password is admin/admin):

$ xdg-open >& /dev/null || open >& /dev/null


  1. Execute the command, and script will be available at
  2. Configure script options on script settings
  3. Add email addresses for errors notification
  4. All logs available on Logs page
  5. If you are using sentry, configure sentry, and all errors will be send into sentry too

Usage without inject

If you want track only specified commands manually without auto-inject, follow to examples below:

# args
from mmc.mixins import BaseCommand

class Command(BaseCommand):
    def handle(self, *args, **options):
        print "OK"

# noargs
from mmc.mixins import NoArgsCommand

class Command(NoArgsCommand):
    def handle_noargs(self, *args, **options):
        print "OK"

When you are using auto-inject, you can use ignore flag on Scripts/Hosts settings. Logs about execution not be stored, but if you got any error on your commands, you will be notified to emails.

Cron debug

For debug any messages or some errors on app, run commands with example below:


# Project commands
50 2 * * * $PYTHON_BIN $MANAGE_PY clean >> $LOG_FILE 2>&1

Multi-instance lock

If you are using "One copy" functionality, and command is run on multiple servers, you can use Memcached/Redis lock. Just configure it on

MMC_LOCK_TYPE = 'MemcacheLock'

    'servers': [''], 'debug': 0

Management commands

mmc_cleanup - clean logs by days/date

mmc_notify - notify users, when script is killed by OS (that actual for long tasks and for big databases). For detailed check (by pid and name) you can install psutil.

Sentry support

If you want receive notifications and detailed traceback to Sentry, you can install raven, and configure project dsn settings.
