|Full description='DMD' is a "Daemon managing Daemons" (or "Daemons-managing Daemon"?), i.e. a service manager that provides a replacement for the service-managing capabilities of SysV-init (or any other init) with a both powerful and beautiful dependency-based system with a convenient interface. It is intended for use on GNU/Hurd, but it is supposed to work on every POSIX-like system where Guile is available. In particular, it has been tested on GNU/Linux.

|Full description='''DMD'''  (daemon managing daemons) is an init system used to start, stop and manage daemons. It provides a replacement for the service-managing capabilities of SysV init (or any other init) with a powerful dependency-based system with a convenient interface. GNU dmd may also be used by unprivileged users to manage per-user daemons (e.g.,  [[tor]], privoxy, mcron, etc.). It is written in Guile Scheme, and is configured and extended using [[Guile]].

DMD was initially launched in 2003 by Wolfgang Jährling, most notable for being entirely written and configurable in Guile Scheme. It was dormant for nearly a decade when it was revived in 2013 as part of the Guix transactional package management system, also written in Guile. It is developed jointly with the [[GNU Guix]] project under the name `''Shepherd''´, with the goal of being used as the init system of [[GNU]].

GNU dmd

https://www.gnu.org/software/dmd/
DMD (daemon managing daemons) is an init system used to start, stop and manage daemons. It provides a replacement for the service-managing capabilities of SysV init (or any other init) with a powerful dependency-based system with a convenient interface. GNU dmd may also be used by unprivileged users to manage per-user daemons (e.g., tor, privoxy, mcron, etc.). It is written in Guile Scheme, and is configured and extended using Guile.

DMD was initially launched in 2003 by Wolfgang Jährling, most notable for being entirely written and configurable in Guile Scheme. It was dormant for nearly a decade when it was revived in 2013 as part of the Guix transactional package management system, also written in Guile. It is developed jointly with the GNU Guix project under the name `Shepherd´, with the goal of being used as the init system of GNU.
