autoreload Adding autoreload script. Jul 11, 2010


Autoreload is a simple python script to watch a directory for changed files and restarts a process when the change is detected.

To use autoreload:

  1. Make sure the script is executable by running chmod +x autoreload
  2. Run ./autoreload <command to run and reload>

For instance, I run ./autoreload python main.py. This first runs python main.py, then watches the current working directory and all subdirectories for changes. If any changes are detected, then the process is killed, and started all over again.
