suncronjob

2.0.0 • Public • Published

suncronjob

This is a version of cron that is based around sunrise and sunset rather than a fixed time of day.

Instalation

npm install suncronjob

Note

From version 2.0.0 onwards, this no longer calls an external library for the cron function. Also this version uses a different syntax from version 1.

Example

SunCronJob = require('suncronjob');
 
options = {
  latitude: 59.436962,      // Tallinn, Estonia
  longitude: 24.753574,
  hours: 1,             // One hour,
  minutes: 10,          // ten minutes
  seconds: 30,          // and 30 seconds
  offset: 'after',      // after
  riseset: 'sunrise',   // sunrise
  once: false           // every day.
};
 
const task = function() {
  console.log("Hello, World!");
 
const job = new SunCronJob(options, task);

Usage

Constructor

SunCronJob = require('suncronjob');
 
const job = new SunCronJob(options, task);

Options

latitude (Default: London, Greenwich)

longitude (Default: London, Greenwich)

These must be set in order for the sunrise and sunset times to be calculated correctly. They are expressed as positive decimals for North and East, negative for South and West.

hours (Default: zero)

minutes (Default: zero)

seconds (Default: zero)

This is the time before or after sunrise or sunset that the job should run.

offset (Default: before)

This must be set to "before" or "after" (or left unset).

riseset (Default: sunrise)

This must be set to "sunrise" or "sunset" (or left unset).

once (Default: false)

If set to true, this job will only run once.

Task

This is the function to run each day at the time before or after sunset as specified.

Function

job.cancel()

This cancels the timer and thus stops the job. There is no way to restart it, other than calling new() again.

Acknowlegements

Many thanks to Kelektiv for his excellent cron package.

However, version 2.0.0 of this package no longer uses the cron package.
