When building a Node.js application, you may need to execute recurring tasks or run them later. ⏰

You might know CRON jobs on Linux systems. CRON is a time-based job scheduler. It allows us to realize tasks every minute, day, months, etc.

With our Node.js app, we want to run something like CRON. But how? Hopefully it exists multiple solutions to schedule tasks on Node.js:

  • node-schedule
  • node-cron
  • bull
  • agenda

Today, we will take a look at Agenda. It is described as “A light-weight job scheduling library for Node.js” on NPM.

It offers features like concurrent jobs, delayed jobs, repeatable jobs, etc. powered with MongoDB.

In this article, we will create a sample App with Node.js and Agenda.
