python-seth 0.6

Python Daemon library

python-seth is a pretty simple object named Daemon used to daemonize a process.

To do so subclass the Daemon object and override its run method with the code you want to turn into a unix daemon.

You can override the shutdown method which is called on Daemon stop (either via the stop method or on SIGTERM).

Cf. examples for code snippet.

  • redirects stderr|stdout to file
  • writes a pid file
  • transparently deletes the pid file at stop
  • catch SIGTERM and handles a clean stop via shutdown method
