Interfaces that you are used to

nosh uses several interfaces that you might already be familiar with:

The fundamental service management mechanism is taken from daemontools, with some augmentations from daemontools-encore and some ideas from runit, perp, and s6.

The service and system management mechanism is intentionally similar to systemd.

The system management control mechanism and toolset are similar to BSD's and Linux's old System V mechanism and toolset, and have compatibility mechanisms.

The scripting utilities parallel daemontools, s6, and daemontools-encore.

And, of course, one can import many systemd service and socket unit files to the native service bundle form very easily.
