Perform live updates on JSON configuration files

npm install liveconf

Have a configuration file with some configuration. e.g. config.json

var liveconf = require('liveconf');
// get the configuration from a file 
var config = liveconf('config.json');
console.log(config.b); // foo  

The configuration object will be cached and will always be the same for the same configuration file. The configuration file is watched so any changes are reflected on the object.

While the code is running you can change the configuration.

console.log(config.b); // bar
