I’m building a web service with Fly.
I want my service will need to perform some tasks periodically; For example, it will have to check several feeds every few hours. Once a day, it will need to run a task which issues notifications.
My app is written in Python and runs from a Docker container. I want to be able to schedule things to be run in a vaguely ‘cronish’ style.
I see a feature called “Scheduled Machines”, which looks approximately correct, but do I really want a new machine? I want an additional process for my existing machine.
Is there a way to specify this?
