# Fresh

Fresh is a command line tool that builds and (re)starts your web application everytime you save a Go or template file.

If the web framework you are using supports the Fresh runner, it will show build errors on your browser.

It currently works with Traffic, Martini and gocraft/web.

Installation

go get github.com/pilu/fresh

Usage

cd /path/to/myapp

Start fresh:

fresh

Fresh will watch for file events, and every time you create/modifiy/delete a file it will build and restart the application.
If go build returns an error, it will logs it in the tmp folder.

Traffic already has a middleware that shows the content of that file if it is present. This middleware is automatically added if you run a Traffic web app in dev mode with Fresh.
Check the _examples folder if you want to use it with Martini or Gocraft Web.

You can use the -c options if you want to specify a config file:

fresh -c runner.conf

Here is a sample config file with the default settings:

root:              .
tmp_path:          ./tmp
build_name:        runner-build
build_log:         runner-build-errors.log
valid_ext:         .go, .tpl, .tmpl, .html
build_delay:       600
colors:            1
log_color_main:    cyan
