pg_listen: trigger a shell command on a Postgres event
Super fast and lightweight. Written in C using libpq.
pg_listen postgres://db-uri channel-name shell-command # for example # pg_listen postgres://localhost/postgres hello "echo they said hi"
Just clone the repo and run
make. The makefile is compatible with BSD and GNU Make and requires only that libpq be installed on the system.
If you use NixOS you can run
nix-shell to build it.
