Runtasktic is a fantastic command-line task management tool for execution of regular long sequential or parallel tasks.

There are often tasks that we repeat several times in predefined orders. Some of these tasks can take time and we would like to be notified when it ends. This is why this project exists.

Describe your tasks in a YAML file, execute all of them with runtasktic in foreground or background. Configure the notification system, and be notified at the end of each task or when they are all finished.

When should I need runtasktic ?

  • when you have a redundant long running task list
  • when you need a notification after a long task completion

    exec    Execute a single command with notification
    help    Prints this message or the help of the given subcommand(s)
    run     Run tasks

Run: all tasks of a configuration file

OPTIONS:
    -c, --config <config>    Configuration path (YAML)

USAGE:
    runtasktic dot <config> <image>

FLAGS:
    -h, --help       Prints help information
    -V, --version    Prints version information

ARGS:
    <config>    Path of the configuration file to visualize
    <image>     Path for the image. `dot` command is required

Configuration

tasks:
  a: # The id of the task
    commands: # Commands to execute, they must exist with a 0 exit code
      - echo Begin a 
      - sleep 0.5
      - echo End a
    on_failure: exit # `continue` or `exit` when the tasks ends with a non 0 exit code
  b:
    commands:
      - echo Begin b
      - sleep 0.25
      - echo End b
    depends_on: [ a ] # This task will be executed after a. 
notification:
  slack: # send notification to slack
    url: https://hooks.slack.com/services/XXXXX/XXXXX/XXXXX # The slack server url
    channel: '#channel' # channel to send message
    emoji: ':rocket:' # emoji to use (optional)
    username: runtasktic # the username to use, default is runtasktic.
  when: always # `always`, `task-end`, `end` or `never` when should I send notification
concurrency: 2 # how many task can run simultaneously
working_dir: /custom/directory # Where is the workind directory, default is where your are using runtasktic
stdout: none # `none`, `/custom/path` where should I save standard logs
stderr: /var/log/runtasktic.err # `none`, `/custom/path` where should I save error logs
on_failure: continue # `continue` or `exit` default behaviour when a task fail, default is `continue`
