(gnu home services shepherd) module supports the definitions of
per-user Shepherd services (see Introduction in The GNU
Shepherd Manual). You extend
home-shepherd-service-type with new
services; Guix Home then takes care of starting the
for you when you log in, which in turns starts the services you asked for.
The service type for the userland Shepherd, which allows one to manage long-running processes or one-shot tasks. User’s Shepherd is not an init process (PID 1), but almost all other information described in (see Servicios de Shepherd) is applicable here too.
This is the service type that extensions target when they want to create
shepherd services (see Tipos de servicios y servicios, for an example).
Each extension must pass a list of
<shepherd-service>. Its value
must be a
home-shepherd-configuration, as described below.
This data type represents the Shepherd’s configuration.
The Shepherd package to use.
Whether or not to start Shepherd on first login.
A list of
<shepherd-service> to start. You should probably use the
service extension mechanism instead (see Servicios de Shepherd).
