Build Status


dbus is a simple library that implements native Go client bindings for the D-Bus message bus system.


  • Complete native implementation of the D-Bus message protocol
  • Go-like API (channels for signals / asynchronous method calls, Goroutine-safe connections)
  • Subpackages that help with the introspection / property interfaces


This packages requires Go 1.7. If you installed it and set up your GOPATH, just run:

go get github.com/godbus/dbus

If you want to use the subpackages, you can install them the same way.


The complete package documentation and some simple examples are available at godoc.org. Also, the _examples directory gives a short overview over the basic usage.

Projects using godbus

  • notify provides desktop notifications over dbus into a library.
  • go-bluetooth provides a bluetooth client over bluez dbus API.
  • playerbm a bookmark utility for media players.
  • iwd go bindings for the internet wireless daemon "iwd".

Please note that the API is considered unstable for now and may change without further notice.
