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.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
