Homebrew Services

Manage background services with macOS' launchctl daemon manager.


Homebrew is used for installing the services.

This does not (and cannot) work with Homebrew on Linux (so don't file Linux issues, please).


brew services is automatically installed when first run.


See the brew services section of the brew man output or brew services --help. To specify a plist file use brew services <command> <formula> --file=<file>.


Tests can be run with bundle install && bundle exec rspec.
