Back when Orthodox File Managers were created, that was the whole list. Nowadays all operating systems have some sort of functionality of letting apps "watch" filesystem for changes, so it would just need to register that it's interested in some files or directories, and then it would receive a callback when that happens. Every operating system does it differently, and there are many gotchas and performance considerations, but a library like chokidar handles most of such issues already.

For watching files to new changes, we can make use of NodeJs inbuilt module, fs. It exposes a function called fs.watchFile but there have been a lot of issues reported by the community saying it’s not reliable. It fires multiple events sometimes for a single file change which results in high CPU utilization. So, to overcome this problem we can use the chokidar package.
