Config::Model::Systemd - Editor and validator for systemd configuration files
Handle all user units:
$ cme edit systemd-user '*' $ cme check systemd-user '*'
Handles all user units that match 'foo':
$ cme edit systemd-user foo $ cme check systemd-user foo
Check all root units:
# cme check systemd '*'
Check all root units that match 'foo':
# cme check systemd foo
Edit override file of
# cme edit systemd foo.service
Handle a service file:
$ cme check systemd-service path/to/file.service $ cme edit systemd-service path/to/file.service
Timer and socket units are also supported:
$ cme check systemd-socket path/to/file.socket $ cme check systemd-timer path/to/file.timer
use Config::Model qw/cme/; cme(application => 'systemd-user' backend_arg => 'free') ->modify('socket:free-imap-tunnel Socket Accept=yes') ; cme(application => 'systemd-service', config_file => 'foo.service') ->modify('Unit Description="a service that does foo things"')
This module provides a configuration editor for the configuration files of systemd, i.e. all files in
~/.config/systemd/user/ or all files in
Ok. I simplified. In more details, this module provides the configuration models of Systemd configuration file that cme, Config::Model and Config::Model::TkUI use to provide a configuration editor (
cme edit) and checker (
The following command loads user systemd files (from
~/.config/systemd/user/ and launch a graphical editor:
cme edit systemd-user foo
Likewise, the following command loads system systemd configuration files and launch a graphical editor to updated an override file (like
systemctl edit command):
sudo cme edit systemd foo
A developer can also edit a systemd file shipped with a software:
cme edit systemd-service software-thing.service
You can also use cme to run sanity checks on systemd configuration files:
cme check systemd-user '*' cme check systemd '*' # may take time cme check systemd-service software-thing.service
use Config::Model qw/cme/; # also import cme function # call cme for systemd-user, modify ans save my-imap-tunnel.socket file. cme( application => 'systemd-user', backend_arg => 'my-imap-tunnel' )->modify('socket:my-imap-tunnel Socket Accept=yes') ;
Similarly, system Systemd files can be modified using
use Config::Model qw/cme/; cme( application => 'systemd', backend_arg => 'foo' )->modify(...) ;
The list of supported parameters is extracted from the xml documentation provided by systemd project. This list is expected to be rather complete.
The properties of these parameters are inferred from the description of the parameters and are probably less accurate. In case of errors, please log a bug.
For now, only
service files are supported. Please log a wishlist bug if you need other unit types to be supported.
In case of issue, please log a bug on https://github.com/dod38fr/config-model-systemd/issues.
