Cron available in Xojo Cloud ?

Hi good people,

I have a need to run a web application in Xojo Cloud.
I also need to run a separate application (most likely a console app) in the Xojo Cloud, which should be run hourly.
Does Xojo Cloud offer cron jobs ? If so where are they found ? I don’t see /etc/cron.allow anywhere in the Xojo Cloud.
If cron is not available, I guess I can run a timer in the App object of the web application.

Regards,
Tony Barry

Can’t that timer launch the console app?

You should file a feature request for this.

Hi Kem,

Yes. I think so anyway. I understand that the Xojo Cloud environment does not use App Nap :slight_smile: which caused me considerable headache in the desktop environment. Timers should just work.

Hi Greg,

I will file the feature request. Thank you for the idea.
