kckr - Kicker, but not broken, and written for node.js

  •        5

Also, I should say that I shamelessly took the technique from CoffeeScript's command line app. They got it right, and they're the only ones I know of that have a watcher that works reliably. First, you need node.js, and npm. Once you got that part down, do the following.

deadsimple-less-watch-compiler - A nodejs script that allows you to watch a folder for changes and compile the less css files into another folder

  •    Javascript

A command that watches folders(and subfolders) for file changes and automatically compile the less css files into css. This is a file system watcher and compiler. It also keep track of a dependency tree and recompiles the parent if an imported (child) LESS file is changed. Install LESS and make sure the lessc binary is accessible to the script. Installing LESS with the -g(global) flag will make the binary accessible to your system.

watchr - Better file system watching for Node

  •    Javascript

Watchr provides a normalised API the file watching APIs of different node versions, nested/recursive file and directory watching, and accurate detailed events for file/directory creations, updates, and deletions.Older environments may need Babel's Polyfill or something similar.

chokidar-cli - Fast cross-platform cli utility to watch file system changes

  •    Javascript

Fast cross-platform command line utility to watch file system changes. It is used in brunch, gulp, karma, PM2, browserify, webpack, BrowserSync, socketstream, derby, and many others. It has proven itself in production environments.

sane - sane aims to be fast, small, and reliable filesystem watcher

  •    Javascript

Don't worry too much about choosing the correct mode upfront because sane maintains the same API across all modes and will be easy to switch. Watches a directory and all its descendant directories for changes, deletions, and additions on files and directories.

vinyl-fs - Vinyl adapter for the file system.

  •    Javascript

Vinyl adapter for the file system. Vinyl is a very simple metadata object that describes a file. When you think of a file, two attributes come to mind: path and contents. These are the main attributes on a Vinyl object. A file does not necessarily represent something on your computer’s file system. You have files on S3, FTP, Dropbox, Box, CloudThingly.io and other services. Vinyl can be used to describe files from all of these sources.


Watcher - Watcher is a daemon that watches specified files/folders for changes and fires commands in response to those changes

  •    Python

The first time you start it (if you haven't done it yourself) it will create ~/.watcher and ~/.watcher/jobs.yml and then it will yell at you. You need to edit ~/.watcher/jobs.yml to setup folders to watch. You'll find a jobs.yml in the same directory as this README. Use that as an example. It should be pretty simple. If you edit ~/.watcher/jobs.yml you must restart the daemon for it to reload the configuration file. It'd make sense for me to set up watcher to watch the config file. That'll be coming soon.

zbox - Zero-details, privacy-focused embeddable file system.

  •    Rust

Zbox is a zero-details, privacy-focused embeddable file system. Its goal is to help application store files securely, privately and reliably. By encapsulating files and directories into an encrypted repository, it provides a virtual file system and exclusive access to authorised application. Unlike other system-level file systems, such as ext4, XFS and Btrfs, which provide shared access to multiple processes, Zbox is a file system that runs in the same memory space as the application. It only provides access to one process at a time.

node-fs-extra - Node.js: extra methods for the fs object like copy(), remove(), mkdirs()

  •    Javascript

fs-extra adds file system methods that aren't included in the native fs module and adds promise support to the fs methods. It should be a drop in replacement for fs.I got tired of including mkdirp, rimraf, and ncp in most of my projects.

Watchman - A File Watching Service

  •    C

Watchman exists to watch files and record when they change. It can also trigger actions (such as rebuilding assets) when matching files change. It can recursively watch one or more directory trees. It does not follow symlinks. It knows they exist, but they show up the same as any other file in its reporting. You can query a root for file changes since you last checked, or the current state of the tree. You can subscribe to file changes that occur in a root.

mock-fs - Configurable mock for the fs module

  •    Javascript

The mock-fs module allows Node's built-in fs module to be backed temporarily by an in-memory, mock file system. This lets you run tests against a set of mock files and directories instead of lugging around a bunch of test fixtures. The code below makes it so the fs module is temporarily backed by a mock file system with a few files and directories.

TrayFileWatcher

This program can watch file- changes on the computer. This program have some benefits if you want to watch some files, or a specifik folder or program folder. It can help you understand more of the I/O file system and more on events.

watcher - watcher is a Go package for watching for files or directory changes without using filesystem events

  •    Go

watcher is a Go package for watching for files or directory changes (recursively or non recursively) without using filesystem events, which allows it to work cross platform consistently. watcher watches for changes and notifies over channels either anytime an event or an error has occurred.

diskover - File system crawler, disk space usage, file search engine and file system analytics powered by Elasticsearch

  •    Python

diskover is an open source file system crawler and disk space usage software that uses Elasticsearch to index and manage data across heterogeneous storage systems. Using diskover, you are able to more effectively search and organize files and system administrators are able to manage storage infrastructure, efficiently provision storage, monitor and report on storage use, and effectively make decisions about new infrastructure purchases. As the amount of file data generated by business' continues to expand, the stress on expensive storage infrastructure, users and system administrators, and IT budgets continues to grow.

pyfilesystem2 - Python's Filesystem abstraction layer

  •    Python

Python's Filesystem abstraction layer. Think of PyFilesystem's FS objects as the next logical step to Python's file objects. In the same way that file objects abstract a single file, FS objects abstract an entire filesystem.

babel-watch - Reload your babel-node app on JS source file changes. And do it fast.

  •    Javascript

Reload your babel-node app on JS source file changes. And do it fast. If you're tired of using babel-node together with nodemon (or similar solution). The reason why the aforementioned setup performs so badly is the startup time of babel-node itself. babel-watch only starts babel in the "master" process where it also starts the file watcher. The transpilation is performed in that process too. On file-watcher events, it spawns a pure node process and passes transpiled code from the parent process together with the source maps. This allows us to avoid loading babel and all its deps every time we restart the JS script/app.

SeaweedFS - Simple and highly scalable distributed file system

  •    Go

SeaweedFS is a simple and highly scalable distributed file system. There are two objectives: to store billions of files! to serve the files fast! Instead of supporting full POSIX file system semantics, SeaweedFS choose to implement only a key~file mapping. Similar to the word "NoSQL", you can call it as "NoFS".

FSArchiver - Filesystem Archiver for Linux

  •    C

FSArchiver is a system tool that allows you to save the contents of a file-system to a compressed archive file. The file-system can be restored on a partition which has a different size and it can be restored on a different file-system. Unlike tar/dar, FSArchiver also creates the file-system when it extracts the data to partitions. Everything is checksummed in the archive in order to protect the data. If the archive is corrupt, you just loose the current file, not the whole archive.
