NodeKeeper - A 30x light weight alternative to nodemon!
nodekeeper is a CLI tool that helps build Node.Js applications by automatically restarting the node application when file changes in the directory are detected.
It does not require any additional changes to your code during developement. It is a replacement wrapper for
node. To use
nodekeeper, replace the word
node on the command line when executing your script.
In case you are intrested in a detailed blog post on how I built it, check it out here
npm install -g @the2ndfloorguy/nodekeeper
And nodekeeper will be installed globally to your system path.
