I wrote a small tool, dune_watch, which automatically executes jbuilder build command each time when files under the executed directory are updated. This is something similar to the polling mode of omake's -P option, which I miss most in jbuilder. dune_watch uses fswatch command to monitor the file system. Since dune_watch knows nothing of the build dependencies, it may launch jbuilder even when it is not really required. It is, however, very useful for me, until jbuilder itself will support the file system polling. dune_watch will be opam-available soon.Simon Cruanes then said:
I've been using a small script for the same purpose for a while now (as a Makefile target): watch: while find src/ -print0 | xargs -0 inotifywait -e delete_self -e modify ; do \ jbuilder build @install; \ doneXavier Clerc added:
I found watchman (https://facebook.github.io/watchman/) to be useful in this kind of situation.
