😈 Insidious

A simple and flexible ruby gem for managing daemons.

Installation

Insidious is available on RubyGems.

Install it manually:

gem install insidious

Or add it to your Gemfile:

gem 'insidious', '~> 0.3'

Usage

Configuration

insidious = new Insidious(
  :pid_file => '/path/where/the/pid/will/be/saved',
  :daemonize => true, # can be true or false but defaults to being true
)

Start a daemon

insidious = Insidious.new(:pid_file => '/tmp/insidious.pid')

insidious.start! do
  while true
    puts Time.now.utc
    sleep 1
  end
end

Stop a daemon

insidious = Insidious.new(:pid_file => '/tmp/insidious.pid')

insidious.start! { your_app }

insidious.stop!

Restart a daemon

insidious = Insidious.new(:pid_file => '/tmp/insidious.pid')

insidious.start! { your_app }

insidious.restart! { your_app }

Check the status of a daemon

insidious = Insidious.new(:pid_file => '/tmp/insidious.pid')

insidious.start! { your_app }

insidious.running? # => true

insidious.stop!

insidious.running? # => false

Get the process id of a daemon

insidious = Insidious.new(:pid_file => '/tmp/insidious.pid')

insidious.start! { your_app }

insidious.pid # This will read from /tmp/insidious.pid
