Do I need cron to use schedulers on Homestead?

Posted 7 months ago by uccdev

Hi,

I'm running laravel through a virtual machine run by homestead at the moment. I've set schedule = true in my Homestead.yaml and I've edited my schedule() function to run a simple email every ten minutes:

          protected function schedule(Schedule $schedule)
          {
                  $schedule->call('[email protected]')
                  ->everyTenMinutes();
          }

It doesn't seem to be enough, though, so I'm wondering if there's anything else I need to do? I haven't installed cron or called anything on the command line, I just have Homestead up and running.

P.S does it matter if I'm using windows if I want to install cron?
