Svc - The Launchd Helper

A ruby command line tool that provides a shortcut for starting and stopping launchd services on Mac OSX.

A config file will be created in your home directory (~/.svc) that will contain a hash of all the nicknames and plist locations. Be careful not to delete that file, as you will then have to manually re-add all the services.


$ gem install svc


To see a list of all available services:

$ svc list

To add a new service:

$ svc add <nickname> <path_to_plist>

To delete a service:

$ svc delete <nickname>

To start a service:

$ svc start <nickname>

To stop a service:

$ svc stop <nickname>

To restart a service:

$ svc restart <nickname>
