Component Watcher

A watch utility for Component. It watches a component.json, then emits resolve, scripts, and styles events, allowing you to trigger these functions elsewhere.

Options:

  • root <process.cwd()> - path where the main component.json is located.
  • development - if you want to watch for field within the .development property.
  • extensions - extensions to look up for scripts and styles. Default { scripts: ['js', 'json', 'html'], styles: ['css'] }.
  • fields - fields to look up for scripts and styles. Default { scripts: ['scripts', 'json', 'templates'], styles: ['styles'] }.

Start or restart the watcher. Aliased as watcher.restart(). watcher starts automatically, so this is unnecessary.

Stop the watcher. Aliased as watcher.close().

Emitted when a component.json file has been changed or a file has been added/removed, meaning you should re-resolve and create new builds.

Emitter when a scripts file has changed. Meaning you can use your previous tree and rebuild.

Emitter when a styles file has changed. Meaning you can use your previous tree and rebuild.
