libsystemd 0.1.0

A pure-Rust client library to interact with systemd


Build Status LoC Documentation

A pure-Rust client library to work with systemd.

It provides support to interact with systemd components available on modern Linux systems. This crate is entirely implemented in Rust, and does not require the libsystemd C library.

NB: this crate is not yet features-complete. If you don't care about C dependency, check rust-systemd instead.


extern crate libsystemd;
use libsystemd::daemon::{self, NotifyState};

fn main() {
    if !daemon::booted() {
        panic!("Not running systemd, early exit.");

    let sent = daemon::notify(true, &[NotifyState::Ready]).expect("notify failed");
    if !sent {
        panic!("Notification not sent, early exit.");

Some more examples are available under examples.
