Bind

Bind actions to various file system events, helping aid in automation of tasks such as refreshing browser(s) when you update a css / sass / js file.

Installation

Install [Gemcutter](http://gemcutter.org) and execute:
$ sudo gem install bind

Executable

The 'bind' executable allows you to perform arbitrary actions based on several events. Currently only the change (mtime) event is supported.

Bind to a single file, outputting its path when changed

$ rbind to style.css -e 'puts file.path'

Bind to glob

$ rbind to stylesheets/*.css -e 'puts file.path'

Bind to ruby glob (allows recursion) note the quotes

$ rbind to 'stylesheets/**/*.css' -e 'puts file.path'

Refresh Safari, and Firefox in the background to the uri specified when style.css or reset.css are modified.

$ rbind refresh http://localhost/page --paths style.css,reset.css --browsers Safari,Firefox

Refresh local static html when the style you are working on is modified.

$ rbind refresh examples/demo.html -f style.css -b Safari

Library

Bind of course supplies a Ruby library as well, which provides the same functionality as the executable above.

Refresh Safari and Firefox, using the RefreshBrowsersHaml action, whenever a haml or sass file is modified, it will be compiled to '..' (up a directory) preceding the refresh.

path = 'http://localhost'
action = Bind::Actions::RefreshBrowsersHaml.new path, '..', 'Safari', 'Firefox'
listener = Bind::Listener.new :interval => 1, :debug => $stdout, :action => action, :paths => Dir['*.haml'] + Dir['*.sass']
listener.run!
