This installs Hangfire and a dashboard in Umbraco, the dashboard is secured and is only available for users with access to the Settings section of Umbraco.

As of v2.0.1, you can now use a separate database for Hangfire, the connection string name then should be: hangfireDB.

            RecurringJob.AddOrUpdate(() => DoIt(null), Cron.Hourly());
        public void DoIt(PerformContext context)
            var progressBar =  context.WriteProgressBar();
