Web interface for CRON jobs?

I have a bunch of python scripts that I’d like to be able to configure and run hourly or daily.

Right now, if I need to update them, add a new one, check the logs, I need to SSH into the server and work from the commandline.

Is there any existing service I can install on a linux VM that will give me a simple web UI for creating, managing, debugging these kinds of cron tasks?

You could give this one a try:

It supports all of the functionality that you’ve mentioned.

Though I would recommend just using the good old way and edit your cronjobs via SSH.
