EZservices

A wrapper for launchctl, inspired by the gem lunchy.

Why EZservices ? Because lunchy can't star/stop/restart severals LaunchAgents at the same time, you need to run severals commands to acheive this.

(from lunchy description) Don't you hate OSX's launchctl? You have to give it exact filenames. The syntax is annoying different from Linux's nice, simple init system and overly verbose. It's just not a very developer-friendly tool.

Instead of using this:

launchctl load ~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.mongodb.plist

you can do this:

ezservices start mongodb

and:

> ezservices ls

~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew-php.josegonzalez.php55.plist
~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.elasticsearch.plist
~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.memcached.plist
~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.mongodb.plist
~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.mysql.plist
~/Library/LaunchAgents/homebrew.mxcl.nginx-full.plist

But the power of EZservices is to start or stop severals LaunchAgents at the same time :

> ezservices start mongodb mysql elasticsearch

mongodb correctly started.
mysql correctly started.
elasticsearch correctly started.

Installation

Install npm cli that comes with nodejs if it's not already done.

Then simply run npm install ezservices -g and you're done!

Usage

The availables commands are: (If all keyword is used, it will perform the operation on all availables services)

  • ezservices start [services | all] starts the given services
  • ezservices stop [services | all] stops the given services
  • ezservices restart [services] restart the given services
  • ezservices ls | list list all the availables services

  • Add edit command.
