SpiderOak releases lightweight filesystem change notification utilities for Windows, OS X, and Linux (GPLv3)
We’ve decided to open source our “directory watcher” utilities.
These are tiny programs that ship as part of SpiderOak. They are written in C and use native OS specific APIs for obtaining file system change information and reporting it back to the main SpiderOak program in a standardized way.
They might be useful to anyone else who needs file system change notification on multiple platforms.
