Peep is a smart wrapper which is lighter and faster. It uses as little fs.FSWatchers as possible, and can prevent duplicate watching.

Peep has a better .add() method which can automatically detect nested structures between the current watched files and directories, and choose the best strategy to make it fast and use less resources.

npm install peep --save
var peep = require('peep')();
    .on('all', function(eventpath){
        console.log(event, path);
    .add('test') // 'test' contains 'test/foo.js' 

Peep doesn't depend on 'globule' module. If you prefer the feature of globbing files, you could do this:

var globule = require('globule');
peep.add( globule.find('test/**/*.js') );

Adds file(s) or directories to be watched

peep.add('test/foo.js', 'test/foo2.js');
peep.add(['test/foo.js', 'test/foo2.js']);

Removes file(s) or directories from being watched.

Removes all watched files and directories.

The current watched files.
