busctl is a debugging tool and useful for calling methods. It's not a
good fit if you want to actively watch remote objects for specific
conditions, really.

Hmm, I figure exposing the bus message serialization and
deserialization to user strings as part of sd-bus would be OK. But
it need some clean-ups and tests first.

Depends on how you're going to use the app. I think that's exactly how
(After=)NetworkManager-wait-online.service is implemented, for example.

I think I've seen someone do this in shell, using dbus-send and
dbus-monitor... please don't.

[systemd-devel] libsystemd export message_append_cmdline

2016-08-15 Thread Brad Bishop
Hi list

I am developing an sd-event+sd-bus application that simply blocks until a 
property changes to a specific value using 
org.freedesktop.DBus.ObjectManager.PropertiesChanged and 
org.freedesktop.DBus.Properties.Get.

I plan on using this application from service units to express ordering 
dependencies.

A couple questions:

1 - Does anyone have any feedback on this approach in general?
2 - Should I not be writing my own app - i.e. is this something busctl can do 
or makes sense to extend it to do?
3 - If I write my own application, message_append_cmdline seems to be a perfect 
fit for parsing cmdlines…how does the community feel about exporting it?

Thanks for your time and feedback.
