node-unix

Unix operating system integration for Node.js-based services

Abstract

This is a Node.js extension module for integrating a Node.js-based daemon/service into Unix-style operating systems. Currently Linux and FreeBSD are supported. The API is loosely modeled after the existing node-windows and node-mac extension modules. The functionality of node-unix is just a subset of them, but it is sufficient to install, uninstall, start and stop Node.js-based services.

Installation

Use the Node Package Manager (NPM) to install this module locally (default) or globally (with option -g):

$ npm install [-g] node-unix

Usage

Use this module similar to (or even in combination with) node-windows and node-mac. See sample-control.js for a simple node-unix based controller for the trivial sample service in sample-service.js.
