Name

sd-bus — A lightweight D-Bus and kdbus client library

Synopsis

#include <systemd/sd-bus.h>

pkg-config --cflags --libs libsystemd

Description

sd-bus.h provides an implementation of a D-Bus client. It can interoperate both with the traditional dbus-daemon(1), and with kdbus. See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/dbus/ for more information about the big picture.

Important

Interfaces described here have not been declared stable yet, and are not accessible from libsystemd.so. This documentation is provided in hope it might be useful for developers, without any guarantees of availability or stability.

Notes

These APIs are implemented as a shared library, which can be compiled and linked to with the libsystemd pkg-config(1) file.
