Preserve Existing Lines While Updating Your Crontab When Using The Whenever Gem
Posted by Weston Ganger
It sure sucks if you have multiple apps using the crontab and you go to add your new task to the crontab using
whenever -w and it overwrites all of your other rules.
They have a helpful option that aids with this. It handles multiple apps or tasks
whenever --update-crontab some_identifier
Now whenever you want to overwrite that rule use the same identifier. If you want a new rule then use a new identifier.
