NPM version Dependency Status Downloads counter

Run supervisor as a gulp task for easy configuration and integration with the rest of your workflow.


This Gulp task is freely inspired from the gulp-nodemon by Jackson Gariety.

Usage

supervisor( script[, options] )

You need to pass to supervisor the path of the script to monitor, and can pass an object with supervisor options, like this :

{
  args: [ "dev" ],
  watch: [ "bin" ],
  ignore: [ "test" ],
  pollInterval: 500,
  extensions: [ "js,jade" ],
  exec: "node",
  debug: true,
  debugBrk: true,
  harmony: true
  noRestartOn: "exit",
  forceWatch: true,
  quiet: true
}

Options

The following options corresponds to the available options from supervisor. If you don't pass these options to the grunt tasks, the default values of supervisor will be used.

args

Type: Array of Strings
List of arguments to be passed to your script.

watch

Type: Array of Strings

ignore

Type: Array of Strings
List of folders to ignore for changes.

pollInterval

noRestartOn

Type: String, "error" or "exit"
Don't automatically restart the supervised program if it ends.
Supervisor will wait for a change in the source files.
If "error", an exit code of 0 will still restart.
If "exit", no restart regardless of exit code.

forceWatch

Type: Boolean
Use fs.watch instead of fs.watchFile.
This may be useful if you see a high cpu load on a windows machine.

quiet

Type: Boolean
Suppress DEBUG messages
