shell-jobs: human-friendly Cron replacement

Hi All

If you're looking for an alternative for cron, here is my alternative;

It's very declarative and easy to use. Instead of awkward notations, you just tell how you would like to run your commands in simple english;

echo `date '+%d %h %H:%M'` > /tmp/now # => 1 second
echo "Good Morning" # => every 6am
echo "Hello World" # => 5 seconds, 200 milliseconds
echo "CATS" # => every 4 hours and 15 minutes
echo "YO" # => from tomorrow 6am, every 1h + 5 mins

Ideas and recommendations are welcome!

Re: shell-jobs: human-friendly Cron replacement

looks good - on the github page the example show text messages - can it start scripts too- or can you set commands so that it would open a file at a set time?

You can like linux without becoming a fanatic!
