Apostrophe-monitor: a much faster "nodemon" specialized for Apostrophe


apostrophe-monitor automatically restarts Apostrophe when you make changes to your code. It is for use during site development. It is much like nodemon, but with much faster restarts because it understands Apostrophe and how it starts up and shuts down. This allows us to avoid paying the price to re-require all of the source files.

While restarting Apostrophe on an i7 Mac might take only three seconds, a developer with a spinning hard drive might wait as many as 30. With apostrophe-monitor that time is cut dramatically.
