Simple Linux inotify bindings

Project description

inotifyx is a simple Python binding to the Linux inotify file system event monitoring API.

Documentation is provided in the module. To get help, start an interactive Python session and type:

>>> import inotifyx
>>> help(inotifyx)

You can also test out inotifyx easily. The following command will print events for /tmp:

python -m inotifyx /tmp

Tests can be run via

./ test

Note that the module must be built and installed for tests to run correctly. In the future, this requirement will be lifted.
