Watch output and trigger on diff!
Ever want to have
watch output only tell you what changed? And not only what, but when? Now you can! Enter:
Watchdiff will monitor command output and will output in the terminal whenever a difference was detected in the output of the running program.
USAGE: watchdiff [FLAGS] [OPTIONS] [command]... FLAGS: -h, --help Prints help information -p, --permament Compare to the initial output (permament mode) -V, --version Prints version information OPTIONS: -d, --delay <delay> Delay between runs in seconds [default: 2] ARGS: <command>... Command to run
To run a command with arguments use
-- to escape
watchdiffs argument parser, like so:
watchdiff -d 5 -- ls -alh
If you have Rust and Cargo installed, Watchdiff can be quickly compiled and installed by running the following command:
cargo install watchdiff
This will install Watchdiff to ~/.cargo/bin/watchdiff, which might need to be added to your shell's PATH variable.
The Watchdiff output is colorized such that red lines with a
- prepended were removed, and green lines with a
+ were added.
