Homelander is a small CLI utility that lets you supervise a bunch of shell commands, possibly recurring, all defined within one simple config file. It relies on Erlang/OTP for robustness.
I wanted to share it because it includes bits of code that could be useful to other Elixir developers:
- packaged as a ~5MB self-contained executable using makeself (no dependencies on an existing Erlang runtime) with this script
- filesystem watching in one file with no dependencies that you can easily add to your own project, it uses watchman
- simple exponential backoff for
Supervisor, in one file with no dependencies
- simple parser in one file with no dependencies
