tokio-signal 0.2.8

An implementation of an asynchronous Unix signal handling backed futures.


Unix signal handling for Tokio.



First, add this to your Cargo.toml:

tokio-signal = "0.2.8"

Next you can use this in conjunction with the tokio and futures crates:

extern crate futures;
extern crate tokio;
extern crate tokio_signal;

use futures::{Future, Stream};

fn main() {

    // Create an infinite stream of "Ctrl+C" notifications. Each item received
    // on this stream may represent multiple ctrl-c signals.
    let ctrl_c = tokio_signal::ctrl_c().flatten_stream();

    // Process each ctrl-c as it comes in
    let prog = ctrl_c.for_each(|()| {
        println!("ctrl-c received!");

    tokio::run(prog.map_err(|err| panic!("{}", err)));
