I´ve explained the basics of Scripting with Python in my former article, but what if you want to run a script periodically on your Raspberry Pi? Well, there is this crazy little thing called “Cron Job”. It is quite easy to set them up on your Raspberry, this is how.
Although I prefer other languages, here´s a small tutorial to get you started with Python on your Raspberry Pi. The latest Rasbpian distribution already comes with Python so you don´t even need to install anything else. Actually, i even found 2 versions on my Raspberry, 2.7.3 when i just run “python” in the terminal and 3.2.3 with “python3”. Obviously, we will use python3 here.
