scheduleR is an attempt to create an intuitive interface for scheduling R and Rmarkdown scripts. Especially for the latter, I find the lack of a good scheduling, logging and notification tool the reason for why I don’t use Rmarkdown as much as I could for generating business report / dashboards.
I’ve built scheduleR’s web interface using Node.js as the foundation. A node script (
node-cron) makes it possible to schedule the execution of R scripts and generation of Rmarkdown reports. The tool also contains detailed logging and status reports. Status notifications and Rmarkdown reports can be actively send via email to those interested after a script or report generation has run.

scheduleR has been tested on GNU/Linux & Windows. As I expect some lingering bugs, let’s call it an alpha release :). Feedback, testing and suggestions are very welcome and can be posted here.
Have a look at it for yourself! You can find information on downloads, installation & configuration at: https://github.com/Bart6114/scheduleR/.
