Listen watcher for Spring

Build Status Gem Version

This gem makes Spring watch the filesystem for changes using Listen rather than by polling the filesystem.

On larger projects this means spring will be more responsive, more accurate and use less cpu on local filesystems.

(NFS, shared VM folders and user file systems will still need polling)

Listen 2.7 and higher and 3.0 are supported. If you rely on Listen 1 you can use v1.0.0 of this gem.


Stop Spring if it's already running:

$ spring stop

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'spring-watcher-listen', group: :development

And then execute:

$ bundle
