Dog: A dumb but friendly process monitor.

Note: I just started this project and it's in a completely non-working state at the moment.

Dog is a very simple process monitor. It daemonizes a process to allow for allow for backgrounding, starting/stopping, etc. It sets up a small Sinatra server to show the status. It can send email alerts if the process dies. It uses a simple YAML config.


$ dog start myserver.rb   # Start myserver.rb. Server at localhost:4567 (if the port is available).
$ dog stop myserver.rb    # Stop myserver.rb
$ dog restart myserver.rb # Restart myserver.rb

That is all.
