I’m working on a Django project and I’m trying to set up an idea that uses a technique I’ve never tried so I’m having some difficulties.
I have an application that can run a bash command to copy a folder to a directory.
It is a large folder and it takes about 20 minutes to copy, so I would like not to block the interface during this time.
I discovered that I can use the subprocess method of python to launch a command in the background. Which would be perfect, except now how do the user know when the subprocess is over?
All of my templates use a common template in which I have integrated a boostrap popup that appears a few seconds with the message and the desired color to indicate the success of a function for example.
I would like this popup to be used to indicate when this subprocess is finished, regardless of the page on which the user is at this time.
How can I set this up?
Has anyone ever done this kind of technique?
