run

    1.4.0 • Public • Published

    Install

    $ npm -g install run

    Usage

    $ runjs yourcode.js

    What does it do?

    runjs will rerun server.js whenever one of the watched files is changed. It ignores files in your .gitignore.

    $ runjs server.js
    Watching /Dropbox/dev/server.js and all sub-directories not excluded by your .gitignore
    Found & ignored file.db ; is dotfile or has ignored extension
    
    Starting: server.js
    > Listening on http://localhost:8888/
    

    No more switching to the terminal to rerun your code. Just change a file and your code will be rerun.

    This is especially nice for web-servers, as you can skip the terminal and alt-tab to the browser to see your updated code happily running.

    Features

    • supports globs in .gitignore (e.g. *.log)
    • any arguments, including debug arguments, are relayed to your code
    • stdin is relayed to your code [not supported by nodemon as of 12/5/11]
    • files and directories in .gitignore are not watched, neither are dotfiles.
    • coffeescript is supported: runjs yourcode.coffee (by rockymeza)
