service start <id>
If a service that has dependencies is requested to be started, its dependencies will be started beforehand.
When *service* starts services, it also starts their dependencies.
If a service is depended on by a non-runnable service, the non-runnable services will have their configuration and deployable files generated once its last dependency is started.
An example for this is a static website that depends on a web server: if the web server is started, the static websites files and possible configuration will be generated or installed where they will be served.
To force a service the use of a particular provider, the syntax token_id=service_id can be used.
If providers are guessed, those from the same environment as the service to be created are used first, if any.
Services from the *root* environment are tried next.
To force *not* using a token, the token_id=none syntax can be used.
The type=service_type syntax can be used to specify what kind of service is to be created if its name does not match a known service definition.
The domain=example.tld syntax can be used to specify domain names when creating services that require one.
