File watching

Oct 05, 2022

I usually use modd (with devd), but it's not maintained.

watchexec-cli looks like a good simple replacement for many of my use cases

Paul Smith wrote a simple bash reloader that wraps fswatch

entr is another

Facebook's watchman and crodjer/watchman (same name, separate projects. The latter is a bash file that depends on inotifywait, so is linux-only. I mention it only because it is confusing that there are two projects with the same name)

notify is a go command using the same library that modd depends on

watchfiles: Simple, modern and high performance file watching and code reload in python. - both a python lib and a cli tool - the cli is very python-oriented

reflex is a go file watcher that looks pretty good, supports config files
