The watcher package

[ Tags: library, mit, system ] [ Propose Tags ]

A thin opinionated wrapper around INotify. Fires AddedChangedMoved/Removed events on files, and that's it. Watches (only files) recursively on a given directory. Designed for simple filesystem watchers that don't want to mess with INotify. Inherits all of INotify's limitations surrounding moved files: Events are not fired for overwritten files nor for files moved out of the watched directory.
