Lingon can start an app, a script or run a command automatically whenever you want it to. You can schedule it to run at a specific time, regularly or when something special happens. Lingon can also make sure that an app or a script automatically restarts if it crashes. Lingon can do all this for you and much more. Lingon X is based on the great Lingon 3 and eXtends it with new features like running jobs as root and at multiple dates. It is now even easier to use yet much more powerful.
Lingon lets you run things automatically by modifying configuration files for the system function called "launchd". This means that you can also edit or remove jobs created by other apps. And the system handles running the jobs in the background so you don't need to have Lingon open after you have saved your job.
The new Lingon X 2.0 has many new features and improvements:
- Added timeline mode to be able to see when jobs will run
- Added list mode to see an overview of the jobs
- The design has been streamlined and improved, you can now e.g. see directly which jobs are disabled
- Better at automatically making sure the job will run by e.g. including whole paths to commands
- You can now revert to an earlier saved version of your job if you e.g. make a mistake or change your mind
- Added possibility to run jobs in a specific month in Time
- Added new settings: LowPriorityIO, MachServices, LimitLoadToSessionType, UserName
- You can now see the finished saved plist
- Added Korean and Russian translations
- Updated for OS X Yosemite 10.10
- Many more small improvements and bug fixes
