I saw some blogs online where they put self parameters on their celery functions, why is mine causing an error like:
TypeError: xml_gr() takes exactly 1 argument (0 given)
ftp = FTP('xxxxx')
x = xml_operation('AGIN', GR_GLOBAL_CURRENT_DATE, ftp, "GR")
"self" is used within class member functions. When you call a member function in an instance of the class, the language automatically passes in the class instance as "self". "self" lets you access the members of the class.
class Thing: var1 = None def set_member(self, value): self.var1 = value def show_member(self, value): return self.var1
Then usage would be
a = Thing() a.set_member(23) a.show_member()
And you'd see the response
23. You don't have to pass in the "self" variable explicitly.
When you declare functions outside of a class, there is no reason to use "self".
