Easily daemonize your python projects

Project description

This package helps in daemonize your Python3 projects.


You can install directly after cloning:

use the Python package:

.. code-block:: bash

$ pip install --user mattdaemon_py3


  • superuser (root) enforcement. Your script either requires it or it doesn't. You choose!

    • If these checks fail, the script will exit with a status of 1.
  • Uses the double-fork magic of UNIX to daemonize.


  • Python_ 3


  • This is designed for CLI scripts, because it decouples from the parent environment and all.
  • Includes annoying messages when you use root to run a script.
  • daemon.start() and daemon.stop() don't print messages. You'll have to decide what to print, if anything.
  • MIT Licensed code, so you're free to do whatever you want with this. Sell it, steal it, improve it, anything at all!

Running / Usage

  • Add the script to your dependencies, it's on pypi! (pip install mattdaemon)
  • Documentation is available on readthedocs_, so check there for usage.
