How to run logstash on WSL (Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS)

Could you please help with running logstash as a service in WSL (Ubuntu 20.04.3 LTS)
As of now I get below error message

sudo systemctl start logstash.service
System has not been booted with systemd as init system (PID 1). Can't operate.
Failed to connect to bus: Host is down


This is more a WSL than a Logstash problem as WSL does not support systemd yet: systemctl doesn't work · Issue #1579 · microsoft/WSL · GitHub

Though I have not tried it myself, there are projects that might be worth for you to check, for example: GitHub - arkane-systems/genie: A quick way into a systemd "bottle" for WSL

I would be very interested to hear if this works for you.

Best regards
