Run Individual Cron Routines within Django

By  on  

When you're looking to run a single cron routine within Django, hit the terminal and run this:

# Running the "build_sitemaps" routine
./manage.py cron build_sitemaps

To see a list of available cron routines, run:

./manage.py cron

Running individual cron routines is probably an obvious flow for Django experts but hopefully this is easier to find than searching through loads of documentation!

    Hmmm, I’m fairly new to Django but I don’t see any management commands related to cron in Django 1.4 that I’m using.

    Were you maybe using some Django app such as Django Cronjobs (https://github.com/jsocol/django-cronjobs), for example, to get that management command?

    Keep up the good work with the posts!
