About

Node-dev is a supervisor for Node.js that automatically restarts the node process when a script is modified. Status and error messages are displayed as desktop notification using either Growl or libnotify.

Node-dev hooks into the require() function to determine which files need to be monitored. Hence it also works with linked modules that live outside of your project directory and doesn't cause any unnecessary server restarts when client-side JavaScript files are modified.

Usage

Simply use the node-dev binary as you would normally use node.

Installation

The node-dev supervisor can be installed via npm:

npm install node-dev -g

This will add the node-dev executable to your PATH.

In order to use Growl notifications growlnotify (form the Extras folder on the Growl disk image) must be installed on your system.
