Track your JavaScript cron jobs

Instantly connect LogSnag to your JavaScript project to track your cron jobs and other important events - LogSnag makes event tracking easy.

When setting up cron jobs in JavaScript, it is usually crucial to keep track of their execution and whether they have been executed successfully or not. Sometimes, a minor failure in a cronjob can cause your JavaScript application to stop working correctly. LogSnag makes it easy to track your cron jobs and their execution status all in real-time, and it works seamlessly with your JavaScript code.

  "channel": "cronjobs",
  "event": "Cronjob Started",
  "description": "job: email-notifications",
  "icon": "⏰",
  "notify": true
});

var requestOptions = {
  method: 'POST',
  headers: myHeaders,
  body: raw,
  redirect: 'follow'
};

fetch("https://api.logsnag.com/v1/log", requestOptions)
  .then(response => response.text())
  .then(result => console.log(result))
  .catch(error => console.log('error', error));
Using JavaScript with jQuery
