rb-fsevent

Very simple & usable Mac OSX FSEvents API

  • RubyCocoa not required!

  • Signals are working

  • Tested on Ruby 1.8.6, 1.8.7 & 1.9.2

Install

gem install rb-fsevent

Usage

require 'rb-fsevent'

fsevent = FSEvent.new
fsevent.watch Dir.pwd do |directories|
  puts "Detected change inside: #{directories.inspect}"
end
fsevent.run

Note about FFI

rb-fsevent doesn't use ruby-ffi anymore because it sadly doesn't allow to catch Signals, you can see the code in ffi branch.
