procd Alternatives

procd is described as 'process and system init service for OpenWRT. It's less resource intensive as it's intended for embedded devices, works with busybox and uClib, hotplug2, libubox and ubus. It watches configuration files to start or restart services and init scripts' and is an app in the os & utilities category. There are eight alternatives to procd for a variety of platforms, including Linux, BSD, PC-BSD, FreeBSD and DragonFly BSD. The best alternative is systemd, which is both free and Open Source. Other great apps like procd are Launchd, OpenRC, sysvinit and nosh.
