onchange

Use glob patterns to watch file sets and run a command when anything is added, changed or deleted.

npm install onchange
onchange 'app/**/*.js' 'test/**/*.js' -- npm test

You can match as many glob patterns as you like, just put the command you want to run after the -- and it will run any time a file matching any of the globs is added changed or deleted.

And also, if you want a more verbose output, set the DEBUG environment variable to onchange. For example:

DEBUG=onchange onchange 'app/**/*.js' 'test/**/*.js' -- npm test
