watcher.js handle error if we're not in a repo


Git-Watcher is just a Node.js script that watches a repository for updates (using Node's and then calls "git log" with some prettifying arguments.

It's a tiny tool I built because I wanted to be able to see exactly how I was changing the commit tree when I called git, without needing to repeatedly call "git log".


Pretty simple: npm install git-watcher to install, watcher to run.

Run watcher from your git repo (or any sub-directories), or from anywhere else with watcher /path/to/repo.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
