NAME

AnyEvent::Inotify::Simple - monitor a directory tree in a non-blocking way

SYNOPSIS

   use AnyEvent::Inotify::Simple;
   use EV; # or POE, or Event, or ...

   my $inotify = AnyEvent::Inotify::Simple->new(
       directory      => '/tmp/uploads/',
       event_receiver => sub {
           my ($event, $file, $moved_to) = @_;
           given($event) {
               when('create'){
                  say "Someone just uploaded $file!"
               }
           };
       },
   );

   EV::loop;

DESCRIPTION

This module is a wrapper around Linux::Inotify2 that integrates it with an AnyEvent event loop and makes monitoring a directory simple. Provide it with a directory, event_receiver (AnyEvent::Inotify::Simple::EventReceiver), and an optional coderef filter, and it will monitor an entire directory tree. If something is added, it will start watching it. If something goes away, it will stop watching it. It also converts IN_MOVE_FROM and IN_MOVE_TO into one virtual event.

Someday I will write more, but that's really all that happens!

METHODS

None! Create the object, and it starts working immediately. Destroy the object, and the inotify state and watchers are automatically cleaned up.

REPOSITORY

Forks welcome!
