pathwatcher

Watch files and directories for changes

Path Watcher Node Module

npm install pathwatcher
  • Clone the repository
  • Run npm install to install the dependencies
  • Run npm test to run the specs
PathWatcher = require 'pathwatcher'

Watch for changes on filename, where filename is either a file or a directory. The returned object is a PathWatcher.

The listener callback gets two arguments (event, path). event is 'rename', 'delete' or 'change', and path is the path of the file which triggered the event.

For directories, the 'change' event is emitted when a file or directory under the watched directory got created or deleted. And the PathWatcher.watch is not recursive, so changes of subdirectories under the watched directory would not be detected.

Stop watching for changes on the given PathWatcher.
