Laravel Scheduling your task


Example

When your command is made available to your application, you can use Laravel to schedule it to run at pre-defined intervals, just like you would a CRON.

In The app/Console/Kernel.php file you will find a schedule method that you can use to schedule your task.

<?php

namespace App\Console;

use Illuminate\Console\Scheduling\Schedule;
use Illuminate\Foundation\Console\Kernel as ConsoleKernel;

class Kernel extends ConsoleKernel
{
    /**
     * The Artisan commands provided by your application.
     *
     * @var array
     */
    protected $commands = [
        Commands\Inspire::class,
        Commands\MyTaskName::class
    ];

    /**
     * Define the application's command schedule.
     *
     * @param  \Illuminate\Console\Scheduling\Schedule  $schedule
     * @return void
     */
    protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
    {
        $schedule->command('my:task')->everyMinute();
        // $schedule->command('my:task')->everyFiveMinutes();
        // $schedule->command('my:task')->daily();
        // $schedule->command('my:task')->monthly();
        // $schedule->command('my:task')->sundays();
    }
}

Assuming your task's $signature is my:task you can schedule it as shown above, using the Schedule $schedule object. Laravel provides loads of different ways to schedule your command, as shown in the commented out lines above.
