Disclaimer: I know we have some of the harshest systemd critics over here. If that sounds like you, then you may want to ignore this post and skip to the next one 😆
Still reading and using systemd? Great! To help you generate new services and monitor your system's logs & units, I created two little tools you may find helpful!
Check out service-tools over on GitHub:
@fribbledom I'm not a fan of systemd, but I am rather indifferent. It's there and must be used, so make the most of it. Kudos on the tools. 👍
@fribbledom Nice, thank you!
Nice. Will use immediately
@fribbledom Haha. I understand people's concerns with systemd, and am a systemd doubter myself, but I use systemd right now and I will look into those tools. Thanks!
@fribbledom ooh I think I need this, especially the log monitoring program
@fribbledom systemd is good though.
@fribbledom Also a shout-out to you as maintainer! It's a pleasure to contribute to your projects.
Awww why, thank you! 💕
@fribbledom looks usefull, I'll check it out.
@fribbledom Arg! We're on Go 1.10.8. I can't update developer tools without a long lead time, unfortunately. So this goes into the "look at it after next distro upgrade" list. 😞
I think you can still compile this fine with Go 1.7+, if you use the regular go get approach. I only just bumped it to 1.11 after switching to Go modules today.
That looks awesome
@fribbledom does that mean there's now finally a log reader that is not, uh, excessively quaint?
@fribbledom useful, i guess everyone does this rarely enough to not remember the syntax but often enough to be annoyed amd need a tool
@fribbledom Wow. This right here is why I love the Open Source community. So convenient.
Do you find yourself using Go a lot for this kind of work? I started looking into Rust, but I keep having the Go carrot dangled in front of me.
I know they're not filling the same niche, but my time is limited for learning :)
Always looking for opinions. if you have one and are willing to share. I'm a Python and Clojure/ClojureScript guy, with enough C/C++ to understand why Rust is so exciting.
