@everyx "XDG Base Directory Specification" is for user units. When it works as a system unit, it should follow Filesystem Hierarchy Standard. And $XDG_CONFIG_HOME is default to $HOME/.config. WorkingDirectory and ConfigurationDirectory are indeed not the same concept, but their values can be the same.

@AvianaCruz ConfigurationDirectory is the base directory for all apps, something like $HOME/.config or /etc, if sing-box follow the XDG Base Directory Specification, it should create or lookup it's specific config directory (not the global ConfigurationDirectory), something like ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/sing-box, and use config.json or other user specific config files.

WorkingDirectory and ConfigurationDirectory are not the same.

@everyx I don't think that it could be used as user unit without modification, so ConfigurationDirectory is the correct way to create directory automatically.

Or should it be added in the upstream?

@everyx When the unit is an system unit which is the default, the below path is /etc/.

@AvianaCruz ConfigurationDirectory is the base directory relative to which user-specific configuration files should be stored, use this to create directory automatically is not the correct usage, although it does create the directory.

AvianaCruz commented on 2022-12-16 03:14 (UTC)

@everyx Please look the document, the option is to make systemd create the directory automatically.

everyx commented on 2022-12-16 03:11 (UTC)

@AvianaCruz sing-box only lookup config.json in current work directory as config file, it's not follow the XDG Base Directory Specification, so setting this should be useless, although we can hack through a startup scripts, but IMHO it is better to submit a feature request to the upstream, thank you.

@everyx The correct way to create configuration directory is using ConfigurationDirectory=, see

@AvianaCruz I need some features like with_clash_api, if this doesn't meet your needs, you can modify it locally.

@everyx I think it would be better to follow the upstream, i.e. just creating /usr/lib/sing-box or not creating these directories at all. Also the build flags should be like the upstream, i.e. set -ldflags to -s -w -buildid= -linkmode=external and _tags to with_quic,with_wireguard,with_acme. (
