Full Description


Cron command implemented in Nodejs


Write your crontab file as:

00 30 11 * * 1-5 echo foo
10 23 0-23/2 * * * echo bar 1>&2

And start cron in foreground with that crontab file:

$ cron ./crontab


Commandline Options

$ cron [--exit-on-failure] [--timezone <timeZone>] <crontab>
Option Default Description
--exit-on-failure (None) When given and any of jobs ends with status code other than 0, exit cron program with that status code
--timezone <timeZone> (None) When given, set timezone for cron jobs

Crontab Format

A sample crontab file will look like:

# sec min hour day month day-of-week command
# Runs every weekday (Monday through Friday) at 11:30:00 AM
00 30 11 * * 1-5 echo foo
# Runs 23 minutes 10 seconds after midn, 2am, 4am ..., everyday
10 23 0-23/2 * * * echo bar 1>&2

Where each number represents seconds, munites, hours, day of month,
months and day of week respectively.
All trailing texts are treated as shell command to execute.

Lines that start with # are treated as comments and are ignored.

Jobs are scheduled with node-cron,
so see its document for details about available cron time format.

Specifying environment variables in crontab file is not supported.
