Headless stack manager?


#1

Okay… So far so good getting everything up and running. I’ve figured out how to build HiFi, got it all up and running on Linux, and I’ve even provisioned a little VM on my server here at the house to bring up a domain to tinker around in. It all runs pretty good (in an alpha good kinda way of course) but I can’t seem to figure out a way to keep the stack manager running unattended… Is there a way to bring it up as a daemon without the user interface where I could just tie it into the init scripts for my VM, fire it up, and leave it running?

There’s currently no daemon mode - I used to run in a screen session – but have evolved over past 15 months to use docker to bundle domain-server and assignment-client in a container providing a single logical service. Others use a script written by Coal that automates pulling code, compiling and running - you can take a look at it and get some ideas on how you might roll your method.

Nailed it, yay! :smiley: Used the startup / shutdown scripts from http://flamesoulis.com/2015/04/29/how-to-compile-hifi-for-the-pi/

Thanks! :slight_smile:
