Here is a code snippet that is useful for creating a timer in Python. A timer can call a function repeatedly after a specific delay, as configured.

Code Snippet

#importing the library using import command
import e32
timer = e32.Ao_timer()
#delay is set to 4.0
delay = 4.0
#defining a function
def do_something(arg=None):
# your code to be repeated every interval goes here
timer.after(delay, do_something)
# To start the timer once
timer.after(delay, do_something)
