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:
- Make sure the script is executable by running
chmod +x autoreload
./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.
