What is Slater

Slater helps trigger cron jobs on time for modern serverless applications. Most of the existing cron solutions require running a server, which is an issue for a lot hosting options.

Slater uses the strength of these newer frameworks like Next.js, SvelteKit, and Nuxt to power your cron jobs.

Basic implementation

A Slater cron job implementation might look like:

  1. Write your business logic in a function
  2. Move that function to an API endpoint
  3. Deploy to a hosting provider
  4. Configure your cron in Slater's dashboard
  5. Monitor results

Think of Slater as your function's alarm clock that reminds it to run at a certain time every day or hour.
