Hello, is there any chance to build a website queue for arachni to scan?

    There's no such functionality in Arachni, that's something that you'll need to do yourself with a shell script or something.

    You gave me a good idea with this, I've been building a new web interface for the new engine which includes sophisticated scan scheduling and queuing, but as usual the WebUIs take the back seat as the engine is my main focus.

    However, I've decided to move the queuing bits out of the WebUI (which would take a long time to be completed) and into the Dispatchers, so that folks can build massive scan queues and have the system figure out when to run scans and how many scans can be ran in parallel at any given time -- which when combined with a Grid configuration it would let you scale up and down infinitely and on-demand.

    And I'd also have a version of this exposed via the REST API which would do some more housekeeping and hide some of the complexities to make things appear simpler.

    Of course, this won't be available any time soon, but I thought you should know that I've put it on my TODO list for the new engine.

    Thanks for reply, looking forward to releasing this update.:) If it's not a secret, when do you plan to release any beta version (as nightlies) ? Do we need to wait a few mounth/half a year/more ? :)

    It's not a secret but I don't have a timetable. It will be a long time, I'm hoping for the start of the next year, although it could be even later.
