Make when-changed cross-platform

Project description

when-changed

Run a command when a file is changed

~ What is it?

Tired of switching to the shell to test the changes you just made to your code? Starting to feel like a mindless drone, manually running pdflatex for the 30th time to see how your resume now looks?

Worry not, when-changed is here to help! Whenever it sees that you have changed the file, when-changed runs any command you specify.

So to generate your latex resume automatically, you can do this:

$ when-changed CV.tex pdflatex CV.tex

Sweetness!

~ What do I need?

Python 2.6+ watchdog

~ Installation

pip install https://github.com/joh/when-changed/archive/master.zip

~ Usage

when-changed FILE COMMAND… when-changed FILE [FILE …] -c COMMAND
