FILEWATCH

Keep track of what files change and when with this super easy to use package.

Installation

Install using pip:

$ pip install filewatch

Then create and register your observer:

# your_observer.py
from filewatch import ObserverBase, file_updated_subject, Watcher

class YourObserver(ObserverBase):
    def notify(self, *args, **kwargs):
        file_list = kwargs['file_list']
        print 'These files have been updated %s' % file_list

file_updated_subject.register_observer(YourObserver())
watcher = Watcher()
watcher.run()

Then simply execute the file:

$ python your_observer.py

Now every time that a file is created / modified within your current working directory, the system will print to console which file was updated.
