Library to implement a well-behaved Unix daemon process

Project description

This library implements PEP 3143: Standard daemon process library.

A well-behaved Unix daemon process is tricky to get right, but the required steps are much the same for every daemon program. A DaemonContext instance holds the behaviour and configured process environment for the program; use the instance as a context manager to enter a daemon state.

Simple example of usage:

import daemon

from spam import do_main_program

with daemon.DaemonContext():
    do_main_program()
