README.md

Pipeline Status MIT License

Sup is a small process supervisor. It is originally to monitor some applications in my X session but it can be used for other things.

Installing

$ git clone https://gitlab.com/rascul/sup
$ cd sup
$ cargo install --path .

Running

Sup must find the config file apps.toml in the config directory. By default this is ~/.config/sup but can be set with -c /path/to/directory. Also inside this directory is where the log file will be stored.

Features

Restart

Sup can be configured to restart an application when it stops. There are three conditions sup can watch for:

  • Success: In this case, the application has done a normal shutdown and the exit status is 0.
  • Failure: If the application exits with a non zero exit status it is considered to have failed.
  • Terminated: The application was killed by some other mechanism, such as with SIGKILL.

Holds

A hold may be placed on any number of application. If there are any holds, sup will keep track and while any held applications are running, sup will not exit. When all held applications are no longer running, and are not configured to restart anymore, sup will close the other applications and shutdown. If no holds are specified, sup will start apps until it realizes there are no holds then proceed to exit.

Configuration File

The configuration file is sup.toml and will be found in the current directory when starting sup. This will change in the future. Sup uses the toml format to describe each application to supervise.

[[app]]

Each application instance to monitor will have an [[app]] section. The apps will be started in the order as read from the file.

Required Entries

  • name: The name of the application.
  • command: The command to run, including path if necessary.
  • args: An array of arguments to pass with the command. May be an empty array.

Optional Entries

  • restart_on_success: Restart the app if it exits successfully. (Default: false)
  • restart_on_failure: Restart the app if it fails. (Default: false)
  • restart_on_terminate: Restart the app if it is terminated. (Default: false)
  • wait: Don't run the next app until this one is finished. (Default: false)
  • hold: Don't exit sup until this app has finished. (Default: false)

Example

[[app]]
name = "x resource"
command = "xrdb"
args = ["~/.Xresources"]
wait = true

[[app]]
name = "terminal"
command = "alacritty"
restart_on_success = false
restart_on_failure = true
restart_on_terminate = true
hold = true

[[app]]
name = "environment"
command = "alacritty"
args = ["-e", "env"]

[[app]]
name = "window manager"
command = "twm"
hold = true

Dependencies

Older Dependencies

A couple deps (mio and signal-hook) are getting a bit old. Mio changed the API with v0.7.0 and I'm currently unable to put forth the time required to update it.
