Jobs are a simple way to run code asynchronously on a set schedule, or whenever you need to.

Basic setup

A job either extends the Job class, or the ScheduledJob class, a scheduled job will run on a set time schedule and a normal job runs when called
Jobs are indexed and required based on their name either in context of the client, or in context of the cluster, a cluster job is called only once and a client job is called for each client that the cluster holds.
Cluster jobs should be named job-name.cluster.ts Client jobs should be named job-name.client.ts

In practise

Scheduled jobs work like this:
import { ScheduledJob } from './base'
const job = new ScheduledJob('a_scheduled_job', 1000, async () => {
// do some work every second
export default job
While regular jobs work like this:
import { Job } from './base'
const job = new Job('a_job', async () => {
// do some work
export default job
// elsewhere in the code:
import { jobs } from '../cache'
const job = jobs.get('a_job')
