Short Description
Run Cron jobs inside Docker container
Full Description


Use Cron inside Docker. Looks for crontab at /cron/crontab

Note: Does not use actual cron binary, as there are issues running it inside Docker.
Uses devcron instead.


This example mounts the folder containing your crontab file. Presumably you would
put your scripts in the same file and reference them in your crontab as /cron/

$ docker run -v /host/folder/containing/crontab:/cron -d hamiltont/docker-cron

This example mounts two folders, one with the crontab and one with the scripts. You need
to use /scripts/ in your crontab

$ docker run -v /host/folder/containing/crontab:/cron -v /host/folder/scripts:/scripts -d hamiltont/docker-cron
