Build web apps, iOS apps, and workflows with Retool.
James Duncan Davidson:
I’ve mentioned a few times before in my essays that
launchdsimply rocks. It can slice, dice, and peel your tomatoes. As is already fairly well covered on the web, it can replace
initand watchdog like processes all in one feel swoop. What hasn’t gotten a lot of attention, however, are some of its other talents. In this essay, I’m going to focus on how it replaces
cron. Yes, our venerable friend cron is due for replacement and
launchdbrings on the goodness.
