Autorespawn is an implementation of the popular autoreload scheme, which reloads Ruby program files when they change, but instead execs/spawns the underlying program again. This avoids common issues related to the load mechanism.
Require all the files you need autorespawn to watch and then do
.autorespawn do # Add the program's functionality here end
If you touch ARGV and $0, you will want to pass the program and arguments explicitely
.autorespawn 'program', 'argument0', 'argument1' do end
Add this line to your application’s Gemfile:
And then execute:
Or install it yourself as:
$ gem install autorespawn
