I’m currently working on a turn-based online web game. I want all players to be able to choose a move, and every 60 seconds I want all players to perform their chosen move at the same time (if no move is chosen, the default move is It will be executed). I plan to store the selected moves in a SQL database. The only problem is I don’t know how to do something every 60 seconds.
I tried to use asyncio and I read that Celery helps, but I’m not quite sure how to achieve exactly the result I want. As I understand the guide only helps to use things within the flask app and not at the same time as the flask app
You can use threading:
import threading import time def perform_task(): print("Performing task") def schedule_task(): while True: perform_task() time.sleep(60) thread = threading.Thread(target=schedule_task) thread.start()
