I’ve been doing a lot of Swift scripting over the past few days and I badly wanted to set some of my scripts up to to run every day and alert me via the notification center.
Swift? Easy. Notification center alert? Done and dusted. Scheduling? Ugh. Cron? Launch daemon? Yuck.
Somehow I managed to get my brain out of cron mode and I googled to see what was out there. All signs pointed to Lingon 3.
Jobs are easy to add, easy to delete. Lingon 3 is available at the Mac App Store, five bucks.
A non-store version (Lingon X) extends Lingon to run jobs as root and support multiple dates. Buy it directly from the developer for $10.
