taskr – restful scheduler – by Matt Zukowski

Matt just announced he developed Taskr a RESTful cron / scheduler daemon written in Ruby.

A cron / scheduler managed via REST, that’s neat. PUT a task for execution in 5 days or every day at 6 am. There are facilities for the tasks to interact with other RESTful services.


It’s based on Camping and on the OpenWFEru scheduler. For the Ruby on Rails aficionados, there is a Taskr Rails plugin.

I like the idea, it’s very focused, with a big potential. Congrats to Matt !
