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.
A Slater cron job implementation might look like:
- Write your business logic in a function
- Move that function to an API endpoint
- Deploy to a hosting provider
- Configure your cron in Slater's dashboard
- Monitor results
Think of Slater as your function's alarm clock that reminds it to run at a certain time every day or hour.
