simple Python binding to the Linux inotify

inotifyx is a Python extension providing access to the Linux inotify file system event notification API. It is primarily written in C but has some Python window dressing

inotifyx exists as an alternative to the much known pyinotify bindings

Reasons you might choose inotifyx over pyinotify * inotifyx is a C extension and does not use ctypes, making it faster and less prone to subtle breakage due to changes in the inotify API * inotifyx is a much thinner wrapper around inotify. pyinotify is more complicated. It does provide features that inotifyx does not, but many of them are not needed by most applications * The API provided by pyinotify seems to change in incompatible ways on a fairly regular basis and with little justification. inotifyx has a simple API that will change rarely, if ever.

Package version:0.2.0-1


inotifyx is a simple Python binding to the Linux inotify file system event
