Show HN: I created a tool to schedule HTTP requests
17 points by caiorolla 40 days ago | hide | past | favorite | 8 comments
In my last project, I was struggling to create and monitor cron jobs.

So, instead of creating hundreds of standalone scrips and executing them with cron, I decided to turn those scripts into multiple endpoints. Next, I created a single service that I could schedule HTTP requests to those endpoints and monitor its execution. No more scripts, now everything is endpoints that I can run manually at any time

I turned this scheduler service into a Micro-SaaS so you don't have to build it yourself: beew.io

I know you can Schedule HTTP requests with Zapier but come on... I will not pay 50 bucks for that hahahaha

btw, feedbacks are welcome.

https://beew.io




You can schedule HTTP requests with cron and curl. You don’t have to use Zapier or any other app. With a little Apache magic you can limit the IP addresses or host names allowed to make API requests.

For monitoring sites by pinging them or periodically checking a status page you can find many services. I use Uptime Robot for multiple clients.


Nice website! What's the difference between beew and easycron[1]?

1. https://www.easycron.com/


@caiorolla, if you want to research, there's also https://cron-job.org and https://cronhub.io/.


None, I think hahahaha.

I'm slowly adding more features and writing documentation. For now, it's just a cheaper and simpler option.


Not feedback just curious- How did you make the marketing site? Did you use a theme/template or created it yourself?


not sure what they're using, but TailwindUI (https://tailwindui.com/) is my go to for marketing pages


I was Just thinking to build something like this today! is the code open source?


Not yet, but it could be.
