Note from current maintainers:

A currently maintained fork of this project has been migrated to https://github.com/go-co-op/gocron

Disclaimer: we (the maintainers) tried, with no luck, to get in contact with Jason (the repository owner) in order to add new maintainers or leave the project within an organization. Unfortunately, he hasn't replied for months now (March, 2020).

So, we decided to move the project to a new repository (as stated above), in order to keep the evolution of the project coming from as many people as possible. Feel free to reach over!

goCron: A Golang Job Scheduling Package.

This package is currently looking for new maintainers (cause @jasonlvhit is in ICU). Please message @jasonlvhit if you are interested.

GgoDoc Go Report Card

goCron is a Golang job scheduling package which lets you run Go functions periodically at pre-determined interval using a simple, human-friendly syntax.

goCron is a Golang implementation of Ruby module clockwork and Python job scheduling package schedule, and personally, this package is my first Golang program, just for fun and practice.

Back to this package, you could just use this simple API as below, to run a cron scheduler.

package main

import (
	"fmt"
	"time"

	"github.com/jasonlvhit/gocron"
)

func task() {
	fmt.Println("I am running task.")
}

func taskWithParams(a int, b string) {
	fmt.Println(a, b)
}

func main() {
	// Do jobs without params
	gocron.Every(1).Second().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(2).Seconds().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(1).Minute().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(2).Minutes().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(1).Hour().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(2).Hours().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(1).Day().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(2).Days().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(1).Week().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(2).Weeks().Do(task)

	// Do jobs with params
	gocron.Every(1).Second().Do(taskWithParams, 1, "hello")

	// Do jobs on specific weekday
	gocron.Every(1).Monday().Do(task)
	gocron.Every(1).Thursday().Do(task)

	// Do a job at a specific time - 'hour:min:sec' - seconds optional
	gocron.Every(1).Day().At("10:30").Do(task)
	gocron.Every(1).Monday().At("18:30").Do(task)
	gocron.Every(1).Tuesday().At("18:30:59").Do(task)

	// Begin job immediately upon start
	gocron.Every(1).Hour().From(gocron.NextTick()).Do(task)

	// Begin job at a specific date/time
	t := time.Date(2019, time.November, 10, 15, 0, 0, 0, time.Local)
	gocron.Every(1).Hour().From(&t).Do(task)

	// NextRun gets the next running time
	_, time := gocron.NextRun()
	fmt.Println(time)

	// Remove a specific job
	gocron.Remove(task)

	// Clear all scheduled jobs
	gocron.Clear()

	// Start all the pending jobs
	<- gocron.Start()

	// also, you can create a new scheduler
	// to run two schedulers concurrently
	s := gocron.NewScheduler()
	s.Every(3).Seconds().Do(task)
	<- s.Start()
}

and full test cases and document will be coming soon (help is wanted! If you want to contribute, pull requests are welcome).

If you need to prevent a job from running at the same time from multiple cron instances (like running a cron app from multiple servers), you can provide a Locker implementation and lock the required jobs.

gocron.SetLocker(lockerImplementation)
gocron.Every(1).Hour().Lock().Do(task)
