ts-node-dev - Compiles your TS app and restarts when files are modified.

  •        181

Tweaked version of node-dev that uses ts-node under the hood. It restarts target node process when any of required files changes (as standard node-dev) but shares Typescript compilation process between restarts. This significantly increases speed of restarting comparing to node-dev -r ts-node/register ..., nodemon -x ts-node ... variations because there is no need to instantiate ts-node compilation each time.

node-dev - Zero-conf Node.js reloading

  •    Javascript

Node-dev is a development tool for Node.js that automatically restarts the node process when a file is modified. In contrast to tools like supervisor or nodemon it doesn't scan the filesystem for files to be watched. Instead it hooks into Node's require() function to watch only the files that have been actually required.

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.

Supervisor - A Process Control System

  •    Python

Supervisor is a client/server system that allows its users to monitor and control a number of processes on UNIX-like operating systems. It shares some of the same goals of programs like launchd, daemontools, and runit. Unlike some of these programs, it is not meant to be run as a substitute for init as “process id 1”. Instead it is meant to be used to control processes related to a project or a customer, and is meant to start like any other program at boot time.

hihat - :tophat: local Node/Browser development with Chrome DevTools

  •    Javascript

Runs a source file in a Chrome DevTools process. Saving the file will reload the tab.This is useful for locally unit testing browser code with the full range of Web APIs (WebGL, WebAudio, etc). It provides access to profiling, debugger statements, network requests, and so forth.

katon - (use hotel instead)

  •    Javascript

Note except if you need a particular feature in katon, please use hotel. Hotel is cross-platform and doesn't require admin privileges to be installed.katon is a development tool that makes dev servers accessible on beautiful local .ka domains. It also autostarts/stops them for you.


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.

node-supervisor

  •    Javascript

A little supervisor script for nodejs. It runs your program, and watches for code changes, so you can have hot-code reloading-ish behavior, without worrying about memory leaks and making sure you clean up all the inter-module references, and without a whole new require system.In order to not watch for file changes, use "-i .".

budo - :clapper: a dev server for rapid prototyping

watchtower - Automatically update running Docker containers

  •    Go

A process for watching your Docker containers and automatically restarting them whenever their base image is refreshed. Watchtower is an application that will monitor your running Docker containers and watch for changes to the images that those containers were originally started from. If watchtower detects that an image has changed, it will automatically restart the container using the new image.

react-hot-loader - Tweak React components in real time.

  •    Javascript

Watch Dan Abramov's talk on Hot Reloading with Time Travel. Note: You can safely install react-hot-loader as a regular dependency instead of a dev dependency as it automatically ensures it is not executed in production and the footprint is minimal.

vogue - Save a CSS file, watch your web browser automatically reload it!

  •    Javascript

Vogue creates a real-time link between your web browser and your file system. When you save a CSS file, used by the HTML page in your browser, Vogue will make the browser reload the stylesheet. Only the stylesheet is reloaded, not the entire page, making it work even for very dynamic/ajax pages.Vogue is all javascript. It runs a server on Node.js, which will watch the file system. The server accepts WebSocket connections from the client code (which uses socket.io). The client javascript can be loaded into a HTML page using a single script tag.

nodemon

nodemon will watch the files in the directory that nodemon was started, and if they change, it will automatically restart your node application.

node-monitor - Node.js application monitoring

  •    Javascript

Node-monitor is a library for remote monitoring and control of your Node.js app servers. Like JMX in the Java world, node-monitor comes with a handful of general monitors, and allows you to create custom monitors for your application.

scrollMonitor - A simple and fast API to monitor elements as you scroll

  •    Javascript

The scroll monitor allows you to receive events when elements enter or exit a viewport. It does this using watcher objects, which watch an element and trigger events. Watcher objects also contain information about the element they watch, including the element's visibility and location relative to the viewport. If your scroll container is an element other than the body you can create a container that creates watchers. The scroll monitor was designed to be very fast. On each scroll event the DOM is only touched twice, once to find the document height and again to find the viewport top. No variables are declared, nor are any objects, arrays, or strings created. Watchers are very cheap. Create them liberally.

elm-live - ⚡ A flexible dev server for Elm. Live reload included.
