How to configure the scheduler in Node.js?

Let’s use the node-schedule plugin and I will show you guys how to configure the scheduler on Node.js server. First thing first, we need to install the Node.js plugin to the application.

Execute the following command in command prompt or terminal.
npm install node-schedule --save

Then, we need to place the below codes to the application.
var schedule = require('node-schedule');

var j = schedule.scheduleJob('*/5 * * * *', function(){  
console.log('Add your function or anything that you want to schedule here!');
});


That’s it. I hope this will help. 🙂
