What's the right way to set up scheduled events in a Repl?

I’m working on a small project (daily manifest automation) in Python that needs to run twice a day: 5PM and 8PM. If I wanted to deploy it on Replit, what would be the right way to set up the scheduled events?

You would deploy your repl with a cron expression of 0 17,20 * * *. You can also use tools such as crontab.guru to help parse cron expressions.

Do note that on Replit, cron scheduling wiill be based on UTC time.
