Scales Better Daemon with PM2

  • PM2 will auto restart your scrip when it fails and start it upon boot. Hers how to use it with Scales:

    The first step is to edit the index.js file remove line 108 and lines 41 to 51 this will remove the existing daemon inside Scales

    These lines should be removed:
    lines 41 to 51:
    var wait = function () {
        if (readyForDaemon()) {
            if (!cliArgs.nodaemon) {
                Logger.info('Scales has started');
                Fs.writeFileSync(pidFilePath, process.pid);
        } else {
            setTimeout(wait, 500);
    line 108 : 

    Next is to globally install PM2

    sudo npm install pm2 -g

    next you want to navigate to the directory you scales is located in

    cd /srv/scales

    now start scales

    pm2 start index.js

    and lastly add pm2 to the start up of your machine

    pm2 startup ubuntu

    Other commands for PM2
    pm2 start index - Start an application with this command
