Announcing AutoRebuild

At work we’ve started using sass for our CSS. The developer actually working on the code asked if we had a good way to rebuild the CSS when the sass file changed. I said no, but it would be really easy to write a CherryPy plugin for it.

AutoRebuild is that plugin.

AutoRebuild will let you configure a set of glob patterns and watch the files for changes. If they change, it will trigger a function to be called. It is up to you to write the function, but the README provides an example of how you configure a function to call make.

This plugin is really simple, but that is really the point. CherryPy makes it really easy to add integration points so working with other services and tools is easy and automated.
