The launchd parser and manager for Python
launchdman is a parser and manager for launchd, the service management framework used by macOS. If you want to schedule to run certain tasks or programs, or run them in certain conditions, launcd is what you use on macOS. launchdman lets you build your configurations and manage(add, remove, group, etc) them on the fly.
Inspired by schedule module.
- A simple to use API for creating and managing launchd configurations.
- Very lightweight and no external dependencies.
pip3 install launchdman
from launchdman import * # Label and Program are must-haves job.add(Label('job'), Program('/usr/local/bin/job')) # I want it to run at load job.add(RunAtLoad()) # write to plist job.write() # add a configuration job.add(StartInterval().every(10).minute) # remove a configuration job.remove(RunAtLoad())
