Pythonic DBus library.

Changelog: https://github.com/LEW21/pydbus/releases

Requirements
------------
* Python 2.7+ - but works best on 3.4+ (help system is nicer there)
* PyGI_ (not packaged on pypi, you need to install it from your distribution's repository - it's usually called python-gi, python-gobject or pygobject)
* GLib_ 2.46+ and girepository_ 1.46+ (Ubuntu 16.04+) - for object publication support

job2 = systemd.StartUnit("ssh.service", "fail")

Watch for new systemd jobs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
.. code-block:: python

from pydbus import SystemBus
from gi.repository import GLib

bus = SystemBus()
systemd = bus.get(".systemd1")

systemd.JobNew.connect(print)
GLib.MainLoop().run()

# or

systemd.onJobNew = print
GLib.MainLoop().run()

View object's API
