Readme

Hot code reload for NodeJS

TL;DR:

```javascript
// lib.js
module.exports = {
"key": "value"
}
// index.js
hotload = require("hotload");
//lib = require("lib");
lib = hotload("./lib.js");
setInterval(function()
{
// normally it would print 'value' indefinitely,
// but at runtime try to change value of "key" in lib.js
// and save lib.js file and see that module will be reloaded
// and new value will be printed.
console.log(lib.key);
}, 1000);
```

Install

npm install hotload
