I added the ability to inline a guard class in the guardfile itself rather than going out to a gem for everything. This could be useful when there are complex things you may need to run as opposed to the guard-shell gem which only lets you 'run on change'. I have some custom things I would like to guard and would rather not create a gem for it. Guard will attempt to load the gem as before and then look for a class. If it is inline it will get picked up.

Here is an example of a Guardfile with what I am describing as an inline guard class:

require 'guard/guard'

module ::Guard
class Example < ::Guard::Guard
def run_on_change(paths)
puts 'hello'

guard 'example' do


Looks nice, thanks Jeff!
