Announcement: Node Schedule is looking for add additional collaborators with commit access. If you are actively involved in open source, ping Tejas Manohar (via email, Twitter, etc.) to express interest. Those who already contribute to the project are preferred.

node-schedule is a flexible cron-like and not-cron-like job scheduler for Node.js. It allows you to schedule jobs (arbitrary functions) for execution at specific dates, with optional recurrence rules. It only uses a single timer at any given time (rather than reevaluating upcoming jobs every second/minute).
