Basically a super-cheap poor-man’s-eventloop
Cheap imitation plastic daemon for an evented run-action without actually being any of those things
screen for this. Right now screen’s hardcoded in the bootstrap, but no reason that can’t change. I just don’t want to try figure it out now.
It listens on a FIFO, waits for a match condition (grep) and then runs the script you specify. And where that says "listens", it really only means
while read line .
MATCH= the match text
ACTION= the script you want to run
TIMEOUT= haha, funny
INPATH= the fifo to read
- That you have bash
- That you use with this with the understanding it’s a cheap imitation plastic daemon
- Settings are at
- That you have a modicum of shell skills (because this will probably break)
