A basic tool for delaying work in the terminal to a specific time. This software was originally written in Kotlin and then recently ported to Java.


java -jar ./waituntil.jar 10:30 ; reboot # Replace reboot with your command

The example above would make the program wait until half past ten AM before exiting and allowing the next command to run. The timestamp can be passed in the formats HH:MM or HH:MM:SS and must be in the 24-hour system. Passing dates is not supported but entering a time that has already passed will make the software wait until that time on the following day.

Contributing / Submitting Feedback

The canonical home of this project is on my personal Gitea-instance but since it has registration turned off, collaborating there is difficult.

If you have not been given an account on gitea.jotoho.de then you can alternatively send me feedback, bug reports or patches via email to contact@jotoho.de. Should that fail, there may be alternative ways to contact me listed on my personal website.

In the future, I may also decide to create a mirror for this project on GitHub, gitlab.com or similar.
