    About

    Helper module for creating, locking, writing and closing proper pidfiles. I use for monit based monitoring of my Node servers.

    The pidfile created will be unlinked when exiting if process.on("exit") is emitted.

    Install

    $ npm install --save mkpidfile
    

    Usage

     
    // Setup signal handlers so process exit event can be triggered
    [ "SIGINT", "SIGTERM" ].forEach(signal => process.on(signal, process.exit));
     
    require("mkpidfile")("/var/run/example.pid");

    Debugging

    NODE_DEBUG=mkpidfile

    Install

    npm i mkpidfile
