Write cron business logic as a Python class and let this app do the rest! It enables Django projects to schedule cron tasks, tracks their success / failures, manages contention (via a cache) etc. Basically takes care of all the boring work for you :-)

Django-cron lets you run Django/Python code on a recurring basis providing basic plumbing to track and execute tasks. The 2 most common ways in which most people go about this is either writing custom python scripts or a management command per cron (leads to too many management commands!). Along with that some mechanism to track success, failure etc. is also usually necesary.

This app solves both issues to a reasonable extent. This is by no means a replacement for queues like Celery ( http://celeryproject.org/ ) etc.
