Every so often I've found myself wishing for a tool that ran a command when a file was modified on disk. After finally spending half an hour searching for one; I ended up throwing something together in less time. A couple of hours of tweaking later - sentry scratches my itches.

Usage: sentry [options]  [file|dir ..] -- commandline to run

 sentry monitors the listed files or directories for changes, if such occur it
 and invokes the commandline following -- each time something changes.

   -t  N   throttle updates to maxium every N seconds, by default 2s
   -c      monitor for file creations in dir (occurances of % in the
           commandline are replaced with the path of the newly created file.)
   -d      daemonize detach from terminal and run in background
   -v      be verbose, add more v's for more verbosity

my testbed buildsystem

Hytte is project skeleton, saving me from editing Makefile.am when adding, removing, renaming files to some projects. I use it on bug reports to larger scale 10kloc projects. It works very well for my development and testing purposes on linux based system with pkg-config supported dependencies. The hytte website contains a tutorial showing the steps often involved when I hack on something new.

I've found the makefile useful enough to distribute, along with it I bundle a setup I've been experimenting in babl and GEGL -- merging the website README and documentation.

The cuts makes the circles form upper case letters from the alphabet, each circle is set off from the others and the background by the dropshadow it is causing.
