Restart-on-change library

Project Description

A Python library to restart the process when source code changes.


  • Automatically restart when source changes
  • Customize when, why, and how restarts happen
  • Runs on Linux and Mac


Restart when any Python module rooted at PYTHONPATH changes:

>>> import lazarus
>>> lazarus.default()

Same thing, but within a uWSGI container:

>>> import lazarus
>>> lazarus.default(restart_func=lambda: uwsgi.reload(), close_fds=False)
