Hi there,

I'm new to playing with EventMachine and I wondered if anyone has a nice
way of backgrounding it and start / stopping it from the command line
like an init script.

e.g. ./mydaemon start|stop

I've not seen an example of this and search through the Juggernaut gem
source I couldn't get the come I'd stolen from it to work with a basic
echo server.

e.g. mydaemon start|stop

Any ideas?

Here's what I did :

# =============================
# script/em_manager
# I did a chmod +x on this file

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
require 'rubygems'
require 'daemons'
  options = {
    :app_name   => "em_manager",
    #:ARGV       => ['start', '-f', '--', 'param_for_myscript']
    #:dir_mode   => :normal,
    #:dir        => path,
    :multiple   => false,
    #:ontop      => true,
    :mode       => :load,
    :log_output => true,
    #:keep_pid_files => true,
    #:backtrace  => true,
   # :monitor    => true

# app/daemons/em_client.rb

EventMachine::run {
  }'./app/daemons/em_client.rb', options)
