I have a datatable that takes some horsepower to generate (7 seconds on my linux box). At the moment, there is a function that synthesizes the datatable when you load the dash app. I’d like for the datatable to update periodically “in the background” maybe once an hour or every 1/2 day. It would be burdensome for the user to wait for the “synthesis” of the datatable on a load. Is there anyway to do this? Even if it’s a sneaky method which fires every once in a while, as long as only one user experiences it that’s fine. Thank you.
try to use the dcc.interval component as describe in the documentation here https://dash.plot.ly/live-updates. this component fires any callback this receives it as an input periodically.
