Description

Currently, I use crontab for fetching web pages at regular intervals. I believe it is not the best option, and it is worth exploring the options available.

I decided to use a combination of systemd services and a scheduling library (https://github.com/dbader/schedule). I am aware that crontab is a very solid way to schedule things but I struggle a lot while making sure my script was added correctly.
