mucron / Home

Introduction

This program is an implementation of the cron server/daemon.

How to install

  • You need to install a third party module: python-daemon. You can download it from here.
  • Save mucron.py and mucron_config.py in the same directory (any directory is fine).

How to use

  • Simple configuration: Set the paths of the log file, the crontab file, and the lock file, in the mucron_config.py file (there are examples in the file).
  • Just an explanation for the lock file: it is a zero byte file whose purpose is to prevent running multiple 'mucron' daemons.
  • Run mucron by typing python mucron.py in your shell.
  • Set your crontabs in the specified crontab file. The syntax of crontab follows the standard. You can modify the crontab file at any time. An example crontab file is provided in the package.
