Reruns the given file whenever a file in the current working dir subtree is changed.
$ npm -g install run
$ runjs yourcode.js
runjs will rerun server.js whenever one of the watched files is
changed. It ignores files in your
$ 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.
- supports globs in .gitignore (e.g.
- 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
.gitignoreare not watched, neither are dotfiles.
- coffeescript is supported:
