How to restart services

Send a restart-service message mentioning the service name of the service to restart. Use the ! operator of the configuration language to send a message (as opposed to make an assertion):

! <restart-service <daemon <wifi-daemon "wlan0">>>
! <restart-service <daemon user-settings-daemon>>

In future, a command-line tool for sending messages to a system dataspace will be provided; for now, create temporary configuration language scripts in /run/etc/syndicate/services:

echo '! <restart-service <daemon <wifi-daemon "wlan0">>>' > $THROCK
sleep 1
rm -f $THROCK
