Schedule jobs by programatically requesting webhooks ๐Ÿ”— ๐Ÿ•’ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ


kron lets you schedule get requests to your server - which can be extremely useful for deployments on platforms such as repl.it, glitch, now, heroku - and any place where your applications may sleep, preventing you from using inbuilt timer functions.

kron is not meant to maintain uptime for your application, rather to schedule processes to occour within the precision of ~1s - opening up the possibility of cron jobs ๐Ÿค–

example: 1 hour (3600 seconds) after this request is sent, https://google.com will recieve a get request from https://kron.fun.

https://kron.fun/?time=3600&url=https%3A%2F%2Fgoogle.com

You should encode URLs when passing them to kron. Once encoded - your the URLs you pass can have query strings as well ๐Ÿคฏ

kron does not repeat requests at regular intervals - but you can set periodic requests to kron which let you do that!

Try on repl.it

It is recommended you self host kron, the hosted version at https://kron.fun is running on a tiny 1GB VPS at Vultr.

You canโ€™t perform that action at this time.
