So I was trying to figure out how to keep a script running forever as I want to constantly get social media updates and feeds from bitcoin exchanges when I use my bot to trade. Previously I would have done this with a bash script that would check for a tmp file that would be generated when the script was running and removed when it stopped, The script would be accessible as a console command in laraval making it easy to run. However, this could sometimes fail as well. I figured there must be a better way to achieve what I want to do.
I headed over to Reddit and posted my question where I have gotten a lot of help before and got a really useful answer from mbdjd. I had overlocked the cron section of the Laravel documentation that mentions the withoutOverlapping() method which would basically start my script whenever it stopped and keep it running at all times.
Did my post help in some way? Feel free to get me something on Amazon!
