Online Cron-Tab Generator

In the UNIX world, few things are more confusing that cron tab entries.

What does 0 8 * * 2 even mean? What are those columns again? The third column is day, isn’t it? Does that mean it runs every day? I don’t even…

Today I found Crontab Code Generator.

It lets you choose each column in a slightly more user-friendly fashion and then spits out a line you can paste into the cron tab file.

I’ll be sleeping easy tonight.
