The problem is that I need to run this code everyday aat midnight in the Rome timezone. The operation is very quick but in the future it could be longer. I would prefer to have a separate process to do this job instead of the streamlit main one.
It’s not clear to me the best approach to separate my fetching/refreshing data from the main streamlit application. For the moment, I don’t care about possible user interlock. At the moment I am the only person who is using this application.
I prefer something more easy and robust.
I see, at the moment, two options:
the use of schedule library
the use of Cron Job
The former needs a separate thread to run the script in order to separate the main application from the data fetch. The latter requires some system information like user but I don’t know how the Community Cloud works, I do not know under which user runs my application.
