Rails Cron — Craken July 18, 2008Posted by John Dewey in Capistrano, Code, Command Line, Configuration, Rails, Rake, Ruby.
My good buddy Doug Mciness wrote a rake task to manage and install cronjobs. We have it hooked into our Capistrano deployments, which allows for uber simple cron management. I added a few modifications such as, erb’ed raketab templates, and global/system specific crontabs.
In the process of determining if these rakefiles should be yaml instead, would probably be the “more railsy rails way” of doing it.
