h1. CronWrapper

cron_wrapper is a gem to allow a more controller approach to running gems that are based on a Rails application
It provides unified logging and some simple process semaphores.

For ruby 1.8.7, use version ~>0.0.12

For ruby 1.9.3, use version ~>0.1.0

It relies on simple conventions to make life easier.  The "wrapped" or target script is expected to live in <ROOT>/lib/cron


h2. Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

    gem 'cron_wrapper'

And then execute:

    $ bundle install

Or install it yourself as:

    $ gem install cron_wrapper
