PHP Crontab Timeline Generator

First, the goods:  (Source available for download from that page.)

This little app parses your crontab and generates a gantt chart of the task time line.  It uses the twzCronChart class.  I basically took their example and modified it to:

  • Accept input via an html textarea.
  • Parse out the comments and blank lines.
  • Show a corresponding list of which cron line corresponds to which “Task”.

I’ll update this post if I make more changes.
