I'm in the process of creating a new website, that needs to do some background work at specific intervals.
Running periodic background tasks on a server can sometime be a complex task. You can of course use the build-in stuff on the server, to trigger a scheduled
task, but I just wanted something simpler, to I've created Timee:
Timee is a little service that lets you run a set of URL's in a given interval. It's focus on being easy to setup, and easy to use.
Timee comes with a build in administration portal, so you can setup tasks via a UI, and see the status of each task:
It needs .NET Framework 4.5 to function, and will install itself as a Windows Service.
The project is located at github: https://github.com/deldy/Timee - read more about it there, and give it a try :)
