Windows Directory Monitor (WDM)

Windows Directory Monitor (WDM) is a library which can be used to monitor directories for changes. It's mostly implemented in C and uses the Win32 API for a better performance.

Note: This is still a work in progress, so it's not advisable to use it yet in anything (unless you are testing it, which is very much appreciated :)).

TODO:

  • Fix all the TODO's in the source.
  • Enable watching subdirectories.
  • Add options to the watch method.
  • Provide info about the change in the callback.
  • Convert \ to / in paths.
  • Don't allow directories to be watched while the monitor is running.
  • Check if the passed direcoty exists.
  • Convert passed directories to absolute paths.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'wdm'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install wdm

Compiling the extension for developers

Download the source, then run the following:

$ rake compile

To get debug messages, you need to enable them in the global.h file:

#define WDM_DEBUG_ENABLED TRUE // This is disabled by default
