systemd by example - Part 3: Defining services

This is the third article in a series where I try to understand systemd by creating small containerized examples. In Part 1, we created a minimal systemd setup in a container. In Part 2 we took a close look at systemd’s dependency management. Now we are turning to systemd services. There is a lot to say about services, so I will split the information across the next few posts, starting in this post with the basics of defining a service unit.
