Powering your Python Apps
What is it?
Red Engine is a modern scheduling framework for Python applications. It is simple, clean and extensive. It is the engine that sets your Python programs alive.
The library is minimal on the surface but extensive and customizable underneath. The syntax very clean:
from redengine import RedEngine app = RedEngine() @app.task('daily') def do_daily(): ... if __name__ == '__main__': app.run()
Compared to alternatives, Red Engine has perhaps the most elegant syntax and is the most productive. It offers more features than Crontab or APScheduler but is much easier to work with than Airflow. It does not make assumptions of your project.

from redengine.args import Return @app.task("daily after 07:00") def do_first(): ... return 'Hello World' @app.task("after task 'do_first'") def do_second(arg=Return('do_first')): # arg contains the value of the task do_first's return ... return 'Hello Python'
