A fzf terminal UI for systemctl
- See and filter both system and user units simultaneously.
- Supports all unit types.
- Units ordered by service, timer, socket, and the rest.
sudoautomatically and only if necessary.
- Filter units by state using
- Has short versions of systemctl commands to reduce typing.
- Runs status after other commands (start, stop, restart, etc).
- Select multiple units, states, and commands using
- Only prompts commands based on current state (e.g. show "start" only if the unit is inactive).

A utility for using systemctl interactively via fzf. Usage: sysz [OPTS...] [CMD] [-- ARGS...] sudo is invoked automatically, if necessary. If only one unit is chosen, available commands will be presented based on the state of the unit (e.g. "start" only shows if unit is "active"). OPTS: -u, --user Only show --user units --sys, --system Only show --system units -s STATE, --state STATE Only show units in STATE (repeatable) -V, --verbose Print the systemctl command -v, --version Print the version -h, --help Print this message If no options are given, both system and user units are shown. CMD: start systemctl start <unit> stop systemctl stop <unit> r, restart systemctl restart <unit> s, stat, status systemctl status <unit> ed, edit systemctl edit <unit> reload systemctl reload <unit> en, enable systemctl enable <unit> d, dis, disable systemctl disable <unit> c, cat systemctl cat <unit> If no command is given, one or more can be chosen interactively. ARGS are passed to the systemctl command for each selected unit. Keybindings: TAB Toggle selection. ctrl-v 'cat' the unit in the preview window. ctrl-s Select states to match. Selection is reset. ctrl-r Run daemon-reload. Selection is reset. ctrl-p History previous. ctrl-n History next. ? Show keybindings. History: sysz is stored in $XDG_CACHE_HOME/sysz/history This can be changed with the environment variable: SYSZ_HISTORY Some units are colored based on state: green active red failed yellow not-found Examples: sysz -u User units sysz --sys -s active Active system units sysz --user --state failed Failed user units Examples with commands: sysz start Start a unit sysz --sys s Get the status of system units sysz --user edit Edit user units sysz s -- -n100 Show status with 100 log lines sysz --sys -s active stop Stop an active system unit sysz -u --state failed r Restart failed user units
Thank you for ShellCheck without which this would be a buggy mess.
