Based on minimal systemd unit
[Unit] Description=BlackD [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target [Service] Type=simple # simple : starts the service immediately. It is expected that the main process of the service is defined in `ExecStart` # foking : considers the service started up once the process forks and the parent has exited. # oneshot : similar to `simple`, but it is expected that the process has to exit before systemd starts follow-up units (useful for scripts that do a single job and then exit). You may want to set `RemainAfterExit=yes` as well so that systemd still considers the service as active after the process has exited. # dbus : similar to `simple`, but considers the service started up when the main process gains a D-Bus name. # notify : similar to `simple`, but considers the service started up only after it sends a special signal to systemd. # idle : similar to `simple`, but the actual execution of the service binary is delayed until all jobs are finished. ExecStart=/usr/local/bin/blackd Restart=on-failure # no : Never # on-success : Only on clean exit # on-failure : Everything but clean exit # on-abnormal : Unclean signal, timeout, watchdog # on-watchdog : Only watchdog trigger # on-abort : Only Unclean exit signal # always : Always RemainAfterExit=false
