    Minimal and efficient cross-platform file watching library

    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.

  • Svelte

    Cybernetically enhanced web apps

    Documentation doesn't state this anywhere at all (and I asked them to update the docs at least), but x = x does not work for primitive values. Svelte checks if variable got changed to the same value, and in such case it doesn't trigger an update. There also doesn't seem to be any trick to force it to.
