4.2.2 Invoking ide daemon

All Dezyne View commands communicate with the Views and Editor through the ide daemon. The daemon is started automagically when issuing any ide-command, e.g. ide hello (see Invoking ide hello), and it is stopped by running ide bye (see Invoking ide bye).

When started automagically, the daemon writes its log file to $XDG_CACHE_HOME/dzn/daemon.log. If the XDG_CACHE_HOME environment variable is not defined, $HOME/.cache/dzn/daemon.log is used instead.

ide ide-option… daemon optionFILE

The options can be among the following:


Enable debug ouput. Careful, this can produce a lot of text!


Listen to editor port EDITOR-PORT, the default is 3003.


Display help on invoking ide daemon, and then exit.


Start web serever on http port HTTP-PORT, the default is 3000.


Listen to ide command port IDE-PORT, the default is 3001.


Listen to browser view port VIEW-PORT, the default is 3002.


Be more verbose, show progress.

When overriding a port setting, the daemo saves this configuration to $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/dzn/daemon.scm. If the XDG_CONFIG_HOME environment variable is not defined, $HOME/.config/dzn/daemon.scm is used instead.
