Hotnode is a package that allows you to automatically reload your code by just saving the source in your editor.
- Automatically reloads your node.js code on file change
- Watches .js files in the current directory and its subdirectories
The following versions are required for Hotnode:
- Node.js >= 0.2.2
- npm >= 0.1.25
To see growl messages as soon as your node.js process has been restarted, you will need http://growl.info/extras.php#growlnotify, a command-line based tool for growl.
For notifications on Ubuntu / Gnome, you need libnotify:
sudo apt-get install libnotify-bin
Install it simply via npm:
npm install hotnode
Instead of starting your app directly with node app.js Launch it with hotnode app.js
