Python File Watcher

Project description


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


Install using pip:

$ pip install filewatch

Then create and register your observer:

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

watcher = Watcher()

Then simply execute the file:

$ python

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