Watchexec family

Since August 2014


The watchexec family of Rust crates:

  • Watchexec the library, to build programs that (by and large) execute commands in response to filesystem events.
  • Watchexec the CLI tool, a general purpose tool which does this.
  • Cargo Watch CLI tool, a Cargo extension which does this for Rust projects.
  • ClearScreen, a library for clearing the terminal screen (which is not as simple as you’d think).
  • Command Group, a library to launch programs in a process group (unix) or under job control (windows).

Current work

A large refactor/rewrite of the Watchexec library to support many long-desired features and future development:
