19.8 Other TurboGears Tools
TurboGears includes a number of optional tools for you to use if your application has specific requirements. There are also third-party tools like TurboMail. We can't cover all of these here, and new tools are popping up every day. But here's a list of a few tools that might save you some time if you need them:
- Scheduler—TurboGears includes support for a cron-like scheduler based on Kronos. You can find more information about the scheduler at http://docs.turbogears.org/1.0/Scheduler.
- Configuration—TurboGears uses ConfigObj to parse configuration files. You can find out more about how this works at http://docs.turbogears.org/1.0/Configuration.
- logging—TurboGears reuses the logger module from Python's standard library. You can learn more about TurboGears logging at http://docs.turbogears.org/The_Logging_system, and more about the logger at: http://docs.turbogears.org/The_Logging_system.
- paginate—When you need to paginate tabular results, TurboGears provides a simple decorator-based pagination mechanism that you can read more about at http://docs.turbogears.org/PaginateDecorator.
