  • The code could be better. This project was more of a playground for me to use libasync and frigg in under "normal" conditions in order to apply that experience later to more extensive libraries, and as such, the IO libraries and wrappers around APIs in this codebase are pretty ad-hoc and single purpose. While not that easily reusable, they could still serve as a nice jumping board for learning, since they're pretty simple,
  • There's a bunch of TODO comments scattered around the codebase,
  • The use of libsystemd is largely unnecessary and makes this program less than ideal to use on non-systemd distributions, but it was a convenient way to squeeze in sd_bus and an event loop in concisely. Version 2 (if any) should use a new D-Bus library, which acts on a similar abstraction level as sd_bus, but doesn't use sd_bus, as it's not really appropriate for the use that I've put it through.
  • Manual page and an actual unit installed by Meson.
