See jobs.yml for proper configuration syntax
Dependencies: python, python-pyinotify, python-yaml
In Ubuntu (and Debian):
sudo apt-get install python python-pyinotify python-yaml
make sure watcher.py is marked as executable
chmod +x watcher.py
start the daemon with:
stop it with:
restart it with:
The first time you start it (if you haven't done it yourself) it will create ~/.watcher and ~/.watcher/jobs.yml and then it will yell at you. You need to edit ~/.watcher/jobs.yml to setup folders to watch. You'll find a jobs.yml in the same directory as this README. Use that as an example. It should be pretty simple.
If you edit ~/.watcher/jobs.yml you must restart the daemon for it to reload the configuration file. It'd make sense for me to set up watcher to watch the config file. That'll be coming soon.
