GNOME Schedule is a graphical front end for the ‘crontab’ and ‘at’ tools.
It supports recurrent (periodical) tasks and tasks that happen only once in the future. It is written in Python using pygtk, and has been developed, tested and packaged for various Linux distributions.
This is free and open source software.
- Supports custom titles and icons for your tasks so that they are more easily to keep track of.
- Templates support so that you won’t have to create the same task again and again; these are saved in gconf and may easily ship them with a Linux distribution.
- If run as root, you can edit any user’s crontab and “at” tasks.
- Human-readable strings like “Every hour” instead of “0 * * * *”.
- Advanced mode for crontab experts.
- Provides a “panel applet” where you can manage tasks from a dropdown menu.
- Predefined common expressions like: every minute, every week, tomorrow, next week.
- A calendar allows you to choose the day you want a task executed.
