vimes: Commander of the Watch

vimes is a command-line utility that monitors files and directories for changes, and triggers execution of user-defined commands according to what changed. What to watch, and what to do when changes are detected, is specified in a simple configuration file (./Watchfile by default).

vimes was inspired by watchr, but is platform agnostic and uses standard UNIX shell commands to specify actions.

Installation

vimes requires Node (version 0.6 or above). Once that is installed, vimes is installed with Node's npm command:

npm install -g vimes

Getting Started

vimes reads a configuration file (./Watchfile by default)

Documentation

vimes ships with man pages:

man vimes vimes-watchfile

Also available online.

Support

If you have questions about how to use vimes; suggestions on how to improve it; or think you've found a bug: post it to the issue tracker.

License

vimes is released under an MIT license; see LICENSE.txt for details.
