I haven't looked into memory usage in chokidar too much, but it'd guess it's just wasting a lot of memory keeping useless data out of Stats objects into memory. You can check out my filesystem watcher (https://github.com/fabiospampinato/watcher) to see how it only keeps in memory that bits that it needs.
PR 1 for release 0.3
2 projects | dev.to | 19 Nov 2021
For our release 0.3 project we were to make a pull request for a external project outside of our class's repos and one pull request for an internal repo. For my external PR I worked and still am working on a library project that my professor maintains outside of Seneca called Filer. Filer is a drop-in library that works like node's fs module but for browsers. The issue I was working on was making a migration of parcel 1 to parcel 2.
What are some alternatives?
chokidar - Minimal and efficient cross-platform file watching library
output-files - Output a tree of files and directories by providing an object. Especially useful for testing with real files.
i18next-fs-backend - i18next-fs-backend is a backend layer for i18next using in Node.js and for Deno to load translations from the filesystem.
draxt - draxt.js – NodeList/jQuery-like package for File System (node.js)
broadcast-channel - :satellite: BroadcastChannel to send data between different browser-tabs or nodejs-processes :satellite: + LeaderElection over the channels
