Development by the original Fresh creator seems to have slowed down a lot with important pull requests waiting for many months to be reviewed and merged, while we're waiting for Fresh2 to be released.
I will be cherry-picking commits from all the forks just to have a better, more up to date version.
Unless I stumble upon something affecting me personally I don't intend to put significant amount of time into improving this already great tool. On day one I rewrote config handling, added multiple directory watching and excluding directories from being watched
I promise to be very responsive reviewing and accepting (or rejecting) pull requests.
Fresh is a command line tool that builds and (re)starts your web application every time you save a Go or template file.
If the web framework you are using supports the Fresh runner, it will show build errors on your browser.
It has been tested with:
go get github.com/c2h5oh/fresh
Fresh will watch for file events, and every time you create/modifiy/delete a file it will build and restart the application.
go build returns an error, it will log it in the tmp folder.
Traffic already has a middleware that shows the content of that file if it is present. This middleware is automatically added if you run a Traffic web app in dev mode with Fresh.
_examples folder if you want to use it with Martini or Gocraft Web.
fresh uses toml configuration files.
./runner.conf is loaded by default (if it exists), but you may specify an alternative config filepath using
fresh -c other_runner.conf
Here is a sample config file with the default settings:
root = "." tmp_path = "./tmp" build_name = "runner-build" build_log = "runner-build-errors.log" valid_ext = [".go", ".tpl", ".tmpl", ".html"] build_delay = 600 colors = 1 log_color_main = "cyan" log_color_build = "yellow" log_color_runner = "green" log_color_watcher = "magenta" log_color_app = ""
fresh accepts custom build flags that are passed to build command of the watched code. To add them use
fresh -b "--race -tags 'tag1'"
fresh accepts custom run arguments that are passed to built binary when starting it. To add them use
fresh -r "-configFile ../config/testing.conf"
