That is how you do it, however you _require_ a main-loop running for
this to work. Working example below.


from gi.repository import Gtk, GLib

def on_timeout(manager):
    res = manager.add_item('file:///home/user/example.txt')

recent_manager = Gtk.RecentManager.get_default()

GLib.timeout_add(5000, on_timeout, recent_manager)
