Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
Library for reliably running jobs

In addition, here's a good project for you to look at for cron (Crontab) type functionality you might want to borrow from: https://github.com/quantum-elixir/quantum-core
Ruby concurrency is hard: how I became a Ruby on Rails contributor

I'm using Quantum as my job runner in Elixir. Doesn't require even Postgres. Can't due that in Rails or other stacks:
^ obviously it won't fit every use case but for that there's Oban which is awesome:

In some cases, we might want to run our code at specific times. Not necessarily every 3 minutes, but every day at 08.00AM. While this is perfectly achievable leveraging the same tools, I'll be pragmatic and recommend Quantum. It allows you to schedule the execution of functions with a cron syntax and takes away all the complexity of managing processes. It's a seasoned library, widely-adopted within the community, very lightweight... And extremely simple.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning Cronex yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
What are some alternatives?
timex - A complete date/time library for Elixir projects.
filtrex - A library for performing and validating complex filters from a client (e.g. smart filters)
calendar - date-time and time zone handling in Elixir
quantum-benchmarks - benchmarking quantum circuit emulators for your daily research usage
agenda - Lightweight job scheduling for Node.js
Crontab - Parse Cron Expressions, Compose Cron Expression Strings and Caluclate Execution Dates.
oban - 💎 Robust job processing in Elixir, backed by modern PostgreSQL or SQLite3
delay-timer - Time-manager of delayed tasks. Like crontab, but synchronous asynchronous tasks are possible scheduling, and dynamic add/cancel/remove is supported.
