fsevents NPM

Native access to OS X FSEvents in Node.js

The FSEvents API in OS X allows applications to register for notifications of changes to a given directory tree. It is a very fast and lightweight alternative to kqueue.

This is a low-level library. For a cross-compatible file watching module that uses fsevents, check out Chokidar.

Installation

$ npm install fsevents

Usage

var fsevents = require('fsevents');
var watcher = fsevents(__dirname);
watcher.on('fsevent', function(path, flags, id) { }); // RAW Event as emitted by OS-X
watcher.on('change', function(path, info) { }); // Common Event for all changes
watcher.start() // To start observation
watcher.stop()  // To end observation

Events

  • fsevent - RAW Event as emitted by OS-X
  • change - Common Event for all changes
  • created - A File-System-Item has been created
  • deleted - A File-System-Item has been deleted
  • modified - A File-System-Item has been modified
  • moved-out - A File-System-Item has been moved away from this location
  • moved-in - A File-System-Item has been moved into this location

All events except fsevent take an info object as the second parameter of the callback. The structure of this object is:

{
  "event": "<event-type>",
  "id": <eventi-id>,
  "path": "<path-that-this-is-about>",
  "type": "<file|directory|symlink>",
  "changes": {
    "inode": true, // Has the iNode Meta-Information changed
    "finder": false, // Has the Finder Meta-Data changed
    "access": false, // Have the access permissions changed
    "xattrs": false // Have the xAttributes changed
  },
  "flags": <raw-flags>
}
