crontab.rs

A lightweight crontab parser with minimal features that does not rely on Rust nightly. Has functions to enumerate the next time a cron schedule should be invoked.

Crontab expressions

MINUTES    HOURS    DAY_OF_MONTH    MONTHS    DAY_OF_WEEK

             Range:    Special characters:
Minutes      = [0,59]  , - * /
Hours        = [0,23]  , - * /
Day of month = [1,31]  , - * /
Months       = [1,12]  , - * /
Day of week  = [0,6]   , - * /

Ranges are inclusive.

(TODO: Write as EBNF notation.)

For example, crontab.rs supports the following:

  • Wildcards: * * * * *
  • Values: 0 0 1 1 *
  • Multiple values: 0,5,10 * * * *
  • Ranges: 0-30 * * * *
  • Steps: */15 * * * *
  • Combinations of all of the above: 1,2,3,5-10,*/15 * * * *

You can use crontab.guru to build and test your crontab expressions.

Usage

extern crate crontab;
extern crate time;

use crontab::Crontab;
use time::{Timespec, at_utc};

let crontab = Crontab::parse("0 * * * *").expect("unknown parse error"); // every hour

// Access to the underlying schedule components:
println!("Minutes: {:?}", crontab.schedule.minutes);
println!("Hours: {:?}", crontab.schedule.hours);

// See when the next event will occur:
crontab.find_next_event(); // Option<Tm>
crontab.find_next_event_utc(); // Option<Tm>

// Or when the next event relative to a given time is:
let time = at_utc(Timespec::new(1500001200, 0));
crontab.find_event_after(&time); // Option<Tm>

See examples/usage.rs, which is guaranteed to compile with the current library version and make use of the library features.

TODO

  • Fix the scheduler to support day of week (currently ignored, though the values are correctly parsed).

  • Support crontab extensions, such as second-resolution, year numbers, and stringly-valued components.

  • Support keywords such as @yearly, etc.
