Script Scheduler App

Install

First, ensure that you have already installed PiCockpit on your Raspberry Pi.

Scripts

Before executing scripts, you must create them on the Scripts page.

On that page, you’re able to create, save, edit, and delete scripts.

You’re also able to give scripts a name, tags, and a description.

Types of Scripts

The Script Scheduler officially only supports Bash scripts.

But if you’re interesting in running a Python script, for instance, you could use Bash to call a Python script.

Script Scheduler

On the Script Scheduler App page, you are able to choose both groups of devices and groups of scripts to run. However, with a free plan, you won’t be able to run scripts across a group of devices.

After choosing a device (or group of devices) and a script (or a group of scripts), you just need to click on “Schedule” at the bottom of the page.

Logs

In order to download a copy of the logs as a plain text file, click on the better on the bottom right of the page.

Free vs. Pro Plans

If you have a free plan, then you can run multiple scripts on one device at a time.

With the Pro Plan, you can run an unlimited number of scripts across an unlimited number of devices.
