-== Defining custom job types
-
-You can define custom job types in your schedule file:
-
- job_type :rails3_runner do |job|
- job.command = "rails runner"
- job.settings = { :use_bundler => true }
- end
-
- every 1.day, :at => "2am" do
- rails3_runner "MyModel.do_something_amazing"
- end
-
-This would create a job like: <tt>cd /path/to/app && bundle exec rails runner "MyModel.do_something_amazing"</tt>
-
-By defining jobs like this, you can also make reusable system commands such as:
-
- job_type :my_great_command do |job|
- job.command = "/usr/bin/my_great_command"
- job.settings = { :environment => false, :path => false, :quote_task => false }
- end
-
- every 3.days do
- my_great_command "arg1 arg2 'arg3'"
- end
-
-This would create a job like: <tt>/usr/bin/my_great_command arg1 arg2 'arg3'</tt>
-
-The settings available when creating job types include:
-
-<tt>environment</tt>:: Set to <tt>false</tt> to stop the command trying to specify the environment at all. Set to a string or symbol to set the environment to that.
-<tt>path</tt>:: Set to <tt>false</tt> to stop the command running cd before the task. Set to a string or symbol to set the path the cd to.
-<tt>use_bundler</tt>:: If set to <tt>true</tt>, the task will be prefixed by <tt>bundle exec</tt>
-<tt>quote_task</tt>:: If set to <tt>false</tt>, whenever will not print the arguments passed to the job in quote marks
