SILVER

A cross-platform service/daemon wrapper with in-build auto-update, crash resilience and more.

Current in development. Documentation pending.

Features:

  • Cross platform - Windows (Service), Mac (Launchd), Linux (systemd)
  • Simple way to host a service (just write a command-line program)
  • Automatic service install
  • Automatic resilience and service crash recovery
  • Application status monitoring with auto restart. Monitor via:
    • HTTP status ping
    • TCP socket echo ping
    • TCP open connection ping
    • File change ping
  • Automatic update support with a framework supporting:
    • validation,
    • signing,
    • atomic commits
    • pre and post install actions (copy, move, rename, exec)
  • Run startup tasks (again just command-line programs)
  • Run tasks on a cron schedule
  • Advanced task/service control:
    • Graceful shutdown
    • Start delay
    • Option to randomize task time(s) (e.g. ensure update checks don't all arrive at the same time of day)
  • Lots of other stuff:
    • Logging and log rotation
    • Pid file
    • Simple text based configuration in JSON format
