Project Description

This package provides buildout recipes for the configuration of cron jobs. It creates files that are suitable for use in /etc/cron.d.

We use the system cron, so this recipe will not install cron for you. If you wish to install cron, use zc.recipe.cmmi perhaps.

Mandatory Parameters

The command to run from cron. Cron can’t handle multi-line commands, so n will become ‘ ‘.
Instead of command you can provide a script inline that will be saved to disk and run in the cronjob.
The account to run the command under
Where to write the cron entry to

Time Parameters

One of ‘reboot’, ‘yearly’, ‘monthly’, ‘weekly’, ‘daily’, ‘midnight’ or ‘hourly’
Any integer from 0 to 59
Any integer from 0 to 23
Any integer from 1 to 31 (must be a valid day if a month is specified)
Any integer from 1 to 12, or the short name of the month such as ‘jan’
Any integer from 0 to 7 (where 0 and 7 are Sunday), or a short name such as ‘mon’

You must specify at least one of the above. You can use normal cron notation here too.

Optional Parameters

Prepare the environment that your cron job will run under, for example setting PYTHONPATH
Any comments made will be prefixed with ‘#’ and included in the generated files.
