    watch-glob

    Watch files and directories with glob patterns

    Installation

    npm install watch-glob
    

    Usage

    watchGlob(patterns, [options], addedCallback, [removedCallback] ])

    • patterns - a glob pattern or array of glob patterns to watch
    • options - the base folder in which to search for the patterns (equivalent to options.cwd) an options object to pass to glob(), plus the following:
      • callbackArg - how the file should be represented on the callback
        • absolute - absolute path
        • relative - path relative to `options.cwd´
        • vinyl - a vinyl-fs object (experimental)
        • object(default) - { base, path, relative }
      • delay - (default: 2000) sometimes Gaze does not seem to correctly watch folders which have not been created yet. Therefore, a 2000ms delay is used
    • updateCallback - function to be called when a file is changed, created, or "created" through a rename
    • removeCallback - function to be called after a file is is deleted or "deleted" through a rename

    Example

    var watchGlob = require('watch-glob'),
        coffee = require('coffee-files');
    
    watchGlob(['tmp/**/*', 'lib/**/*'], { callbackArg: 'relative' }, function(filePath) {
      // Perform livereload
    });
    
    watchGlob('coffee/**/*.coffee', { cwd: 'src' }, function(filepath) {
      coffee.file(filepath.path, 'build/' + filepath.relative);
    });
    

    install
