    @taskr/watch

    1.1.0 • Public • Published

    @taskr/watch npm

    Watch files & Execute specified tasks on change

    After initializing a Chokidar instance, specified paths will be watched and run Tasks serially in response to adding, updating, or deleting a matching filepath.

    When a Task is restarted by task.watch(), the Task's options.src will contain the full path of the file that triggered a response.

    Install

    $ npm install --save-dev @taskr/watch
    

    Usage

    module.exports = {
      * lint(task, opts) {
        // process single file via `opts.src` if populated
        yield task.source(opts.src || "src/*.js").eslint()
      },
      * scripts(task, opts) {
        // process single file via `opts.src` if populated
        yield task.source(opts.src || "src/*.js").babel({ presets: ["es2015"] }).target("dist/js")
      },
      * styles(task) {
        yield task.source("src/app.sass").sass().target("dist/css")
      },
      * default(task) {
        // watch all JS files; run 'lint' then 'scripts'
        yield task.watch("src/**/*.js", ["lint", "scripts"])
        // watch multiple paths; only run "styles"
        yield task.watch(["src/foo/*.sass", "src/*.sass"], "styles")
      }
    }
