Snitch is a binary that helps your TDD cycle (or not) by watching tests and implementations of Go files. It works by scanning files, checking the modification date on save and re-running your tests.
It's usual in Go projects to keep the implementation and tests under the same package, so this binary follows this convention.
This tool focuses on Go developers. With a few LOCs we get interesting stuff.
It was a Friday afternoon and I was writing code, but had nothing to watch and report my tests while I changed code.
Inspired by Guard, I decided to build this and thought more people could benefit from it.
