TODO

  • Maybe add support for setting the interval based on log-in times.

cronwhip.pl

The included file cronwhip.pl is the original implementation of cronwhip. It is an ugly hackjob that works, and it is included for anyone who does not want to install Python 3 to run the new version. It is no longer maintained but it should continue to work as long as the output of the commands last -x and crontab -l remain unchanged.

CHANGELOG

2015-02-23

  • Update to use modern string formatting.
  • Add option to read crontab from file or STDIN.

2013-11-23

  • added command-line options for configuring the interval

2012-11-25

  • added service file

#2012-02-26 Cronwhip has been converted to a Python 3 module. The module itself is small and can still be used as a stand-alone script, but it can now be used to write other scripts.

The new option --show-missed prints a list of all the missed cronjobs and when they would have been run.
