Difference between #1 and #2 of
Cron Jobs in Yii

Revision #2 has been created by Roman Solomatin on May 27, 2013, 10:34:33 AM with the memo:

Updated markdown syntax.
« previous (#1) next (#3) »


Title unchanged

Cron Jobs in Yii

Category unchanged


Yii version unchanged

Tags unchanged

cron, cronjobs, heroku, bash, console, Yii Console, yiic

Content changed

'parameters' => 'text',
'execution_result' => 'text'

Next, I generated a model using Gii. Then I added two methods

public function beforeValidate(){
if(gettype($this->parameters) !== "string"){
$this->parameters = serialize($this->parameters);
return parent::afterFind();

When you are creating a new CronJob, pass any parameters in as an array and the Model will serialize them for you.
Next, we need the CronCommand so that we can process these jobs from the command line. I set mine up with one action (actionIndex) that processes all the jobs. It selects all the jobs that need to be executed that haven't yet been, and starts to process them.

For all the code, check out the github page at [https://github.com/aarondfrancis/yii-CronCommand](https://github.com/aarondfrancis/yii-CronCommand "https://github.com/aarondfrancis/yii-CronCommand"). There you will find the migration, the model, the console command, and a bash script for if you are on Heroku.
