Guard-rails is watching on your railses!

Gem Version Build Status Dependency Status Code Climate

Want to restart your Rails development server whilst you work? Now you can!

guard 'rails', :port => 5000 do
  watch('Gemfile.lock')
  watch(%r{^(config|lib)/.*})
end

Lots of fun options growing!

  • :daemon runs the server as a daemon, without any output to the terminal that ran guard (default false)
  • :debugger enable the debugger in server. Required ruby-debug gem. (default false)
  • :environment is the server environment (default development)
  • :force_run kills any process that's holding the listen port before attempting to (re)start Rails (default false)
  • :pid_file specify your pid_file (default tmp/pids/[RAILS_ENV].pid)
  • :port is the server port number (default 3000)
  • :server the webserver engine to use (try :server => :thin)
  • :start_on_start will start the server when starting Guard (default true)
  • :timeout waits when restarting the Rails server, in seconds (default 30).
  • :zeus_plan the custom plan in zeus, only works when zeus option is true (default server)
  • :zeus support zeus to boost rails init speed (default false).
  • :CLI construct the runner command as your willing! Will omit all options above except pid_file! (default rails server --pid tmp/pids/[RAILS_ENV].pid)

How-to

  • Multiple instances use pid_file option to run multiple instances with same rails_env
