Readme

watch-glob
Watch files and directories with glob patterns

Installation

npm install watch-glob

Usage

watchGlob(patterns, options, addedCallback, removedCallback )
  • patterns - a glob pattern or array of glob patterns to watch
  • options - the base folder in which to search for the patterns (equivalent to options.cwd) an options object to pass to glob(), plus the following:
callbackArg - how the file should be represented on the callback
* `absolute` - absolute path
* `relative` - path relative to `options.cwd´
* `vinyl` - a [vinyl-fs](https://github.com/wearefractal/vinyl-fs) object (experimental)
* `object`(default) - { base, path, relative }
delay - (default: 2000) sometimes Gaze does not seem to correctly watch folders which have not been created yet. Therefore, a 2000ms delay is used
  • updateCallback - function to be called when a file is changed, created, or "created" through a rename
  • removeCallback - function to be called after a file is is deleted or "deleted" through a rename

Example

var watchGlob = require('watch-glob'),
coffee = require('coffee-files');
watchGlob(['tmp/**/*', 'lib/**/*'], { callbackArg: 'relative' }, function(filePath) {
// Perform livereload
});
watchGlob('coffee/**/*.coffee', { cwd: 'src' }, function(filepath) {
coffee.file(filepath.path, 'build/' + filepath.relative);
});
