Pythonic DBus library.

Changelog: https://github.com/LEW21/pydbus/releases

Requirements
------------
* Python 2.7+ - but works best on 3.4+ (help system is nicer there)
* PyGI_ (not packaged on pypi, you need to install it from your distribution's repository - it's usually called python-gi, python-gobject or pygobject)
* GLib_ 2.46+ and girepository_ 1.46+ (Ubuntu 16.04+) - for object publication support

.. _GLib: https://developer.gnome.org/glib/
.. _girepository: https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/GObjectIntrospection

Examples
--------

Send a desktop notification
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
.. code-block:: python

from pydbus import SessionBus

bus = SessionBus()
notifications = bus.get('.Notifications')

notifications.Notify('test', 0, 'dialog-information', "Hello World!", "pydbus works :)", [], {}, 5000)

List systemd units
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
.. code-block:: python

from pydbus import SystemBus

bus = SystemBus()
systemd = bus.get(".systemd1")

for unit in systemd.ListUnits():
print(unit)

Start or stop systemd unit
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
.. code-block:: python

from pydbus import SystemBus

bus = SystemBus()
systemd = bus.get(".systemd1")

job1 = systemd.StopUnit("ssh.service", "fail")
job2 = systemd.StartUnit("ssh.service", "fail")

Watch for new systemd jobs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
.. code-block:: python

from pydbus import SystemBus
from gi.repository import GLib

bus = SystemBus()
systemd = bus.get(".systemd1")

systemd.JobNew.connect(print)
GLib.MainLoop().run()

# or

systemd.onJobNew = print
GLib.MainLoop().run()

View object's API
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
.. code-block:: python
