Install

Npm

yarn add cron-converter

or

npm install cron-converter --save

Bower

bower install cron-converter --save

Use

This step is for usage from node, the bower build exposes a global

var Cron = require('cron-converter');

Create a new instance

var cronInstance = new Cron();

Parse a cron string

// Every 10 mins between 9am and 5pm on the 1st of every month
cronInstance.fromString('*/10 9-17 1 * *');
 
// Prints: '*/10 9-17 1 * *'
console.log(cronInstance.toString());
 
// Prints:
// [
//   [ 0, 10, 20, 30, 40, 50 ],
//   [ 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17 ],
//   [ 1 ],
//   [ 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 ],
//   [ 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 ]
// ]
console.log(cronInstance.toArray());

Parse an Array

cronInstance.fromArray([[0], [1], [1], [5], [0,2,4,6]]);
 
// Prints: '0 1 1 5 */2'
console.log(cronInstance.toString());

Get the schedule execution times

// Parse a string to init a schedule
cronInstance.fromString('*/5 * * * *');
 
// Get the iterator, initialised to now
var schedule = cronInstance.schedule();
 
// Optionally, use a reference Date or moment object
var reference = new Date(2013, 2, 8, 9, 32);
reference = moment([2013, 2, 8, 9, 32]);
// And pass the reference to .schedule()
schedule = cronInstance.schedule(reference);
 
// Calls to ```.next()``` and ```.prev()```
// return a Moment.js object
 
// Prints: '2013-03-08T09:35:00+00:00''
console.log(schedule.next().format());
// Prints: '2013-03-08T09:40:00+00:00''
console.log(schedule.next().format());
 
// Reset
schedule.reset();
 
// Prints: '2013-03-08T09:30:00+00:00''
console.log(schedule.prev().format());
// Prints: '2013-03-08T09:25:00+00:00''
console.log(schedule.prev().format());
