Commando: Watch some files; Rerun a command

[ development, library, mit, program ] [ Propose Tags ]

Commando comes in two forms - A library and an executable.

  • Executable

Watch a directory, and when changes occur, run a command.

From the commandline the program is used like so:

commando -c echo

This will watch the current directory, and when an event occurs, pass the serialized representation of the event as an argument to echo.

  • Library

To use the library just

import System.Commando

See the System.Commando module documentation for more details.

The Commando executable module is a good example of using Commando as a library.
