crontroll

A cronjob controller written in bash. Treat cronjobs similar to services and enable or disable them from the command line.

Examples

$ crontroll status updatedb
enabled: updatedb; 0 3 * * * updatedb -U ~/drive
$ crontroll disable updatedb
$ crontroll status updatedb
disabled: updatedb; 0 3 * * * updatedb -U ~/drive
$ crontroll enable updatedb
$

Setting up cronjobs

Instead of writing directly to your crontab file, create a file per cronjob in ~/.cron.

Example

~/.cron $ cat updatedb
0 3 * * * updatedb -U ~/drive

Then run crontroll reload to enable your new cronjob.

Logging

Each cronjob will create a logfile at ~/.logs/cronjobs/
