this is one of those problems I've needed to solve for forever, but which i've never explicitly looked up a clean solution for. I can immediately think of 3 instances in the past week where this would have been perfect.



Watchman from facebook is another great, single-purpose solution.

We switched from watchman to entr on the project I'm currently working on because watchman was troublesome to configure and IIRC it completely detaches from the shell as well.
