    JS Standard Style

    Purpose

    Setup a node.js app as systemd service.

    Sometimes you just want an "old style" daemon for simple services.
    Sometimes you have to deploy in small devices (like a RaspberryPi) and you can't use Docker and all the band.

    Installing

    npm i -g service-systemd

    Quick start

    • Install service

      • pass settings in command line (see full documentation for all options)
      sudo service-systemd --add --service my-service --cwd /path/to/service --app main.js
      • pass all settings in JSON file
      sudo service-systemd --add --settings service.json
    • Run the service

    sudo service my-service start
    sudo service my-service stop
    sudo service my-service restart
    • Uninstall service
    sudo service-systemd --remove --service my-service

    Programmatic usage

    const service = require('service-systemd')
     
    // add service
     
    try {
      await service.add({
        name: 'my-service',
        cwd: '/path/to/app',
        app: 'main.js',
        env: {
          NODE_ENV: 'prod',
          PORT: 3002
        }
      })
      console.log('my-service installed')
    } catch (error) {
      console.error('something wrong', error)
    }
     
    // remove service
     
    try {
      await service.remove('my-service')
      console.log('my-service removed')
    } catch (error) {
      console.error('something wrong', error)
    }
