How this works

Replace all tasks in crontab file with one which will invoke method TaskRunner::checkAndRunTasks().

Import tasks from current crontab file or add them manually. Active tasks will run one by one if current time matches with the task's time expression. Output of tasks can be handled. For each execution will be assigned status:

  • Success if method returned true;
  • Error if method returned false or an exception was caught;
  • Started if task is running or wasn't ended properly.


  • Works with any storage engines
  • Flexible implementation with interfaces
  • Disable, enable and run tasks through tool interface
  • Handle tasks output however you want
  • Time expression helper shows next run dates
  • Monitor runs results
  • Export and import tasks from crontab
  • Add needed method for new task from dropdown
