pidly

Description

Pidly is a very minimalistic daemon library that doesn't make assumptions. Pidly allows you to control the daemon without getting in the way with forced verbose output and usage messages.

Examples

require 'pidly'

class Test < Pidly::Control

  before_start do
    puts "BEFORE START #{@pid}"
  end

  start :when_daemon_starts

  stop do
    puts "Attempting to kill process: #{@pid}"
  end

  after_stop :test_after_daemon_stops

  error do
    puts "SENDING EMAIL | Error Count: #{@error_count}"
  end

  def when_daemon_starts
    loop do
      print "TEST FROM #{@pid}"
      sleep 2
    end
  end

end

@daemon = Test.spawn(
  :name => 'Test Daemon',
  :path => '/tmp',
  :verbose => true
)

# @daemon.send ARGV.first
@daemon.start # stop, status, restart, clean!, and kill.

Install

$ gem install pidly
