Simple cron schedule expression editor for Linux Desktop

Creating a crontab file can be challenging sometimes as its format is not entirely intuitive. This is a very simple and basic free app to generate crontab scheduler syntax for scheduling applications or commands to run. You can create any custom schedule with fine-tuning the months, days, hours, minutes you want to run a specific command or application.

The application also has a few embedded examples, if you want to better understand how a crontab schedule syntax looks like and it also gives you useful ideas.

** Main Features of Mkcron : **

  • Neat easy to understand User interface.
  • Help you in generating complete crontab schedule syntax by allowing you to set Program parameters and arguments.
  • Highlights meaning of every component of syntax in human-readable form for easy understanding.
  • Allows you to save/bookmark your schedules for future use.
  • Shows upcoming execution date-time of schedule while creating syntax.
  • Comes with a lot of pre-built mostly used schedule examples which let you create new tasks easily.
  • There is a random schedule generator built inside the app which can create random schedules for you and help you learn crontab syntax.
