Watch current directory and execute a command if anything in it changes
#!/bin/bash
#
# Watch current directory (recursively) for file changes, and execute
# a command when a file or directory is created, modified or deleted.
#
# Written by: Senko Rasic <senko.rasic@dobarkod.hr>
#
# Requires Linux, bash and inotifywait (from inotify-tools package).
#
# To avoid executing the command multiple times when a sequence of
# events happen, the script waits one second after the change - if
# more changes happen, the timeout is extended by a second again.
#
# Installation:
# chmod a+rx onchange.sh
# sudo cp onchange.sh /usr/local/bin
#
# Example use - rsync local changes to the remote server:
#
# onchange.sh rsync -avt . host:/remote/dir
#
# Released to Public Domain. Use it as you like.
#
# Using script: http://senko.net/en/linux-auto-rsync/
