How to host and schedule your python script on PythonAnywhere?

    Table of Contents

In our last post here, we learned how to create a python script which will automatically delete your messages from gmail account based on a query.

The complete ready-to-use code can be found here.

Follow the steps in the above tutorial to download the ‘credentials.json’ file and then run the init() method to create the ‘token.json’ file, as we will be needing both of them for hosting our script on PythonAnywhere.

If you don’t already have an account on PythonAnywhere create one and choose the ‘Beginner Account’ at signup as it is free.

Once you have signed up and verified your account. Go to ‘Files’, select ‘Upload a file’ and upload ‘credentials.json’, ‘token.json’ and ‘auto_delete.py’. Make sure to add your desired query in the last part of the script:-

if __name__ == '__main__':
    logger.info("Deleting messages from abc@gmail.com.")
    delete_messages('from:abc@gmail.com\
            subject:"Go Shopping"\
            older_than:1d'
                    )

Now, select tasks and give the path of ‘auto_delete.py’ file, if your are following this tutorial, the path will be

/home/**yourusername**/auto_delete.py

Select a time when you want the script to run. For the very beginning, you can set it 2-3 minutes later than current time to check if there is any error log or something.

If there are no errors, then you are good to go. Also, in addition to the log created by PythonAnywhere, one more file name ‘auto_delete.log’ will be created in your home folder which will have all your logged message.

In the beginner account you can only have one scheduled script, if you want this same script to run more than one time in a day you have to opt for paid plans on PythonAnywhere.

In case of any issues, feel free to ask in the comment section.
