    Task Runner

    A very simple webapp which should act as a cron replacement with a web-interface. You may define tasks in a tasks.json file:

    [{
        "name": "A Task",
        "script": "/usr/bin/cat",
        "args": [ "/etc/fstab" ]
    }, {
        "name": "Another Task",
        "script": "/usr/bin/date"
    }]

    You can then run any of these tasks through a web UI: Screenshot

    Setup

    To get started, simply install this package (npm install -g @paulavery/task-runner) and then start the application via task-runner.

    You may set the following environment variables to configure the application:

    • TR_PORT: The port to run the application on. Defaults to 3000
    • TR_TASKFILE: The file from which to read the task definitions. Defaults to tasks.json in the current working directory.
    • TR_DATABASE: The sqlite database file to save information about previous task invocations to. Defaults to tasks.db in the current working directory.
