    gaze-cli

    NPM

    Dependency Status

    CLI wrapper for the gaze file watcher. Watches files for changes, including renamed or new files, and runs a command. Can pass the filename into the command to prevent unnecessary work.

    Install

    npm install --save gaze-cli
    

    Can also be installed globally.

    Usage

    Run gaze from your command line with a command and pattern.

    See package.json for this module for an example of using gaze with npm scripts.

    Run gaze --help for a full list of options.

    $ gaze --help
    Usage: gaze <command> <pattern> ...
    
    If present, the string $path in <command> will be replaced by the full path to
    the file that changed.
    
    Options:
      --version        Show version number
      --help           Print this help message
      --silent         Do not print messages
      --ignore-rename  Ignore when a file is renamed
    
    Examples:
      gaze "jshint $path" "lib/**/*.js"    Runs jshint when a js file in the lib folder changes
      gaze "jshint $path" "**/*.js" "!node_modules/**/*"    Runs jshint when any js file that is not in node_modules changes
    

    Tips

    Internally Gaze tries to use native OS events. This will only work if the number of files you are watching is less than the number of open file descriptors for your OS, otherwise it will attempt to use stat polling which often fails. You can check what this limit is with ulimit -n, if it's low you should increase it. If you get a RangeError or EMFILE error, this is probably the cause.
