Service Properties

The output of this step is a file titled stats.yaml. This file contains a mapping of the values that will be displayed in the Properties section in a service’s menu.

Due to the fact that config variables are only available when the service is running, this file can only be populated at runtime. In services Start9 has wrapped or created, we typically handle this in configurator/src/main.rs. This file is essentially a script that acquires the necessary values at runtime from config (eg. /root/.lnd/start9/config.yaml), and dynamically populating them to the stats.yaml file, marking each value with the appropriate keys for UI display (ie. masked or copyable). Running the configurator is typically included in the docker_entrypoint.sh file.
