watchexec has passed automated validation. It may have or may still fail other checks like testing (verification).
NOTE: No required changes that the validator checks have been flagged! It is appreciated if you fix other items, but only Requirements will hold up a package version from approval. A human review could still turn up issues a computer may not easily find.

Guidelines

Guidelines are strong suggestions that improve the quality of a package version. These are considered something to fix for next time to increase the quality of the package. Over time Guidelines can become Requirements. A package version can be approved without addressing Guideline comments but will reduce the quality of the package.

  • The iconUrl should be added if there is one. Please correct this in the nuspec, if applicable. More...
  • ProjectUrl and ProjectSourceUrl are typically different, but not always. Please ensure that projectSourceUrl is pointing to software source code or remove the field from the nuspec. More...
  • Title (title) matches id exactly. Please consider using something slightly more descriptive for the title in the nuspec. More...

watchexec has passed automated package testing (verification). The next step in the process is package scanning.
Please visit https://gist.github.com/be59de365d6f07c7696d3cc18cf59408 for details.
This is an FYI only. There is no action you need to take.

Hi, there are some items that should be addressed:

We've found watchexec v1.16.2 in a submitted status and waiting for your next actions. It has had no updates for 20 or more days since a reviewer has asked for corrections. Please note that if there is no response or fix of the package within 15 days of this message, this package version will automatically be closed (rejected) due to being stale.

Take action:

  • Log in to the site and respond to the review comments.
  • Resubmit fixes for this version.
  • If the package version is failing automated checks, you can self-reject the package.

If your package is failing automated testing, you can use the chocolatey test environment to manually run the verification and determine what may need to be fixed.

Note: We don't like to see packages automatically rejected. It doesn't mean that we don't value your contributions, just that we can not continue to hold packages versions in a waiting status that have possibly been abandoned. If you don't believe you will be able to fix up this version of the package within 15 days, we strongly urge you to log in to the site and respond to the review comments until you are able to.

Unfortunately there has not been progress to move watchexec v1.16.2 towards an approved status within 15 days after the last review message, so we need to close (reject) the package version at this time. If you want to pick this version up and move it towards approval in the future, use the contact site admins link on the package page and we can move it back into a submitted status so you can submit updates.

Status Change - Changed status of package from 'submitted' to 'rejected'.

Description

watchexec

Software development often involves running the same commands over and over. Boring!

watchexec is a simple, standalone tool that watches a path and runs a command whenever it detects modifications.

Example use cases:

  • Automatically run unit tests
  • Run linters/syntax checkers

Features

  • Simple invocation and use
  • Runs on OS X, Linux and Windows
  • Monitors current directory and all subdirectories for changes
    • Uses most efficient event polling mechanism for your platform (except for BSD)
  • Coalesces multiple filesystem events into one, for editors that use swap/backup files during saving
  • By default, uses .gitignore to determine which files to ignore notifications for
  • Support for watching files with a specific extension
  • Support for filtering/ignoring events based on glob patterns
  • Launches child processes in a new process group
  • Sets the following environment variables in the child process:
    • If a single file changed (depending on the event type):
      • $WATCHEXEC_CREATED_PATH, the path of the file that was created
      • $WATCHEXEC_REMOVED_PATH, the path of the file that was removed
      • $WATCHEXEC_RENAMED_PATH, the path of the file that was renamed
      • $WATCHEXEC_WRITTEN_PATH, the path of the file that was modified
      • $WATCHEXEC_META_CHANGED_PATH, the path of the file whose metadata changed
    • If multiple files changed:
      • $WATCHEXEC_COMMON_PATH, the longest common path of all of the files that triggered a change
  • Optionally clears screen between executions
  • Optionally restarts the command with every modification (good for servers)
  • Does not require a language runtime

Anti-Features

  • Not tied to any particular language or ecosystem
  • Does not require a cryptic command line involving xargs

Please Note: This is an automatically updated package. If the package is outdated for more than two days, please let me know!

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
