Migration from watchgod
This package was significantly rewritten and renamed from
watchfiles, these docs refer to the new
The main reason for this change was to avoid confusion with the similarly named "watchdog" package, see #102 for more details.
The most significant code change was to switch from file scanning/polling to OS file system notifications using the Notify rust library. This is much more performant than the old approach.
As a result, the external interface to the library has been changed somewhat.
The main methods:
All remain, the following changes affect them all:
watcher_clsis removed and replaced by
watch_filterwhich should be a simple callable, see filter docs
- all these methods allow multiple paths to be watched, as result, the
arun_processis now keyword-only
- the other optional keyword arguments have changed somewhat, mostly as a result of cleanup, all public methods are now thoroughly documented
watchgod package remains¶
watchgod pypi package remains, I'll add a notice about the new
package name, but otherwise It'll continue to work (in future, it might get deprecation warnings).
Documentation is available in the old README.
