#13807 new enhancement

support for launchd.plist items (e.g. UserName) in portfiles

Reported by: jyrkiwahlstedt Owned by: ci42
Priority: Normal Milestone: MacPorts Future
Component: base Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: Cc: febeling@…, e40 (e40)
Port: couchdb


Currently there are only few plist items that can be defined in portfiles. I specifically have need for UserName for CouchDB (there is no way to specify the user in ini file!), but I expect other may have need for others, too.

Port: couchdb added

The couchdb install contains a launchd plist already, is there anything wrong with it? The mp startup item does not work for me, though. So this works:

sudo launchctl load -w /opt/local/Library/LaunchDaemons/org.apache.couchdb.plist

and this doesn't:

sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/org.macports.CouchDB.plist

The port install UI message advertises the latter one, which is a bit unfortunate since it's broken.

In b493d5337a0c0d83998d6672ce60be20427c49d7/macports-base (master):

Add Portfile options: startupitem.user &
Ports can now use these to tell launchd which user and group to run the
daemon process as.
