Why?

I work across Mac and Linux. I am neither a vim nor an emacs pro, and thus code in Mac as the Linux boxes are on demand and has only ssh access. But my run time is in Linux, :sigh: not using docker yet.

So far, I have been using launchctl and .plist along with a .sh to watch a desired directory and sync it across the desired Linux system.

Why JavaScript?

Some how, I managed to get the launchctl and .plist working, I don't understand it completely. It's a nightmare when I want to tweak it, thus JavaScript, which I comprehend much better.
