    handlebars-watch


    A node package that executes Handlebars precompiler commands whenever a change happens in the watched directories.

    There are a couple of node packages that does the same thing and even more, but I noticed that most of them are implementing there own precompiler for Handlebars. I just wanted to use the existing Handlebars precompiler and trigger it by watching a folder structure.

    Installation

    The package may be installed via npm using the npm install -g handlebars-watch command.

    Usage

    Options:
      -c, --config     Path to Config File   [string]
    

    In CLI

    handlebars-watch -c ../build/hbw-config.json
    

    Inside a node file

    var hbw = require('handlebars-watch');
    hbw.watchAndCompile('../build/hbw-config.json');
    

    The config file is a simple json array and is required for this package. Each item in the array is a combination of a path and command. The path is the location of the folder to watch and command is the command to execute when the watch is triggered.

    Eg.

    [{
      "path": "templates/pages/",
      "command": "handlebars templates/pages>pageTemplates.js -a -e html"
    },{
      "path": "templates/partials/",
      "command": "handlebars templates/partials>partialTemplates.js -a -p -e html"
    }]
    
    1. The path should be relative to the location of the config file.
    2. Install Handlebars as a global package.
