SesMgr is an application designed to create a sessions and kill launched applications on exit. Additionally, it relaunches applications when they exit.


The session definition is done by means of a python file, such as for instance:

#!/usr/bin/env python2
from sessionmanager import Application, Session, makeApps

configs = (
#Format: (application, dialog, retries, interval, stdout, stderr)
    ("openbox", ""),
    ("xfce4-panel", "", False, 0),

#Visual Stuff
    ("unclutter", -idle 5"),
    ("xcompmgr", "-c -s -fF -n -I 0.4 -D 5")

defaults = (True, 1, 1)
Session(makeApps(configs, defaults, log_dir=None))
