Scheduling Tasks in an Addon

failcookie - 3 months ago

I have a task that needs to run on a daily basis (3am at night). It's all tied to a specific addon. It's a pretty simple task - at 3am, it will call a job that will parse through files and upload documents. In Laravel, I would jump into the Console/Kernel and add a $schedule->daily to the list. How do I go about this same process in Pyro?

You can define them in config/streams.php but it's pry best to do them in your addon service provider (doc was missing - just added): https://pyrocms.com/documentation/streams-platform/latest#core-concepts/service-providers/writing-service-providers/addonserviceprovider-schedules

Perfect! I saw you posted daily - does it support similar options as the Laravel task scheduling? (https://laravel.com/docs/5.4/scheduling#schedule-frequency-options)

I'm more specifically looking at certain times of the day to run like dailyAt('3:00')

EDIT: What do I put in the class file to make sure it gets called? I did something like this just to make sure it was working, but I am guessing that is not proper.

public function getName()
    {
        dd(true);
    }
