Scheduling Tasks in an Addon
Created 6 years ago by failcookie

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):

Perfect! I saw you posted daily - does it support similar options as the Laravel task scheduling? (

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()

I just had the same problem. After review the implementation I could find out how to define more complicated frequencies. Here are some examples:

     * The addon's scheduled commands.
     * @type array|null
    protected $schedules = [
        'dailyAt|11:00' => [ImportCarList::class], // dailyAt('13:00')
        'twiceDaily|1, 13' => [ImportCarList::class] // twiceDaily(1, 13)
