This official package no longer includes the systemd service since it may cause issues with Bloop clients (cf. comments on PR #1284). It is now in a separate package bloop-systemd

I was able to fairly easily make this install the latest 1.4.8 with a search/replace:

@Musikolo There are also other things to fix so I've made a PR :-)

@TheElectronWill, for some reason, the checksum for bloop-coursier-channel-1.4.0 file failed to me:

Could you please look into?

Thank you!

@bloopoid I don't get it - we have different clients (metals, sbt, cli) and only one server that shares the work between them. How do they negotiate the version of bloop server? Seems like I still have to install it manually and specify single version myself. Also in the release notes I see:

From now on, the recommended way to install bloop is through coursier install, only available in the latest coursier versions. It's recommended you upgrade to the latest.

So it's saying that it should be installed by coursier by myself. And if I still prefer arch package what's wrong with providing additional systemd service for it?

bloopoid commented on 2020-05-12 18:09

Systemd is no longer recommended because the version should be specified by the build client starting bloop, not by the server you have installed locally. There is no concept of installing the server anymore. Now, you only install the CLI client.

@isomarcte Your use of systemd is interesting. You can copy paste the systemd service file from the repo and install it yourself, as it won't be installed automatically by default

kurnevsky commented on 2020-05-12 13:02

@bloopoid But systemd service is still present in the repo: Why don't install it in the package phase, as it used to be?

mrzeznicki commented on 2020-05-12 12:40

@isomarcte Yeah, I rely on it too - I think it's still possible to create a systemd unit yourself execing bloop server but I can't check if server started this way is reused because, well, I can't run it

mrzeznicki commented on 2020-05-12 12:35


$ whereis bloop
bloop: /usr/bin/bloop /usr/lib/bloop
$ which bloop

isomarcte commented on 2020-05-12 12:17

@bloopoid I am also getting the sha256sum error.

Also, is there a recommended alternative to using the systemd service? Is the recommendation to just not run it as a user daemon? All I see in the referenced ticket from the release notes is this,

Formulas will no longer install systemd and brew services. We will keep them around in case people feel really strongly that they want to use them, but they will no longer be installed automatically and recommended.

I rely heavily on it, in concert with systemd.resource-control(5) to control memory usage of bloop. Lacking that, bloop+metals often takes up 50-75% of my system memory, e.g. 7-10GiB.
