There are moments when you'd automatically want to run a script the moment
that a file updates. Instead of running these things by hand we can use a
nifty tool called
entr to help us automate these things. The project page
for this tool can be found here.
This video assumes that you've already installed
entr. On MacOS you can run;
brew install entr
If you're running linux then you can build this yourself. If you're running ubuntu then you might also be able to install via:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install entr
Either way, assuming you've got
entr installed you can now automatically run the unit tests
apon saving by running:
ls checking/*.py | entr pytest test.py::test_starts_correctly
