A Smart Alternative to `watch make`

watch-make is a script that rebuilds your project only when make detects it needs a rebuild, for example when source files change.

Features:

I wrote it in response to this Stack Overflow question.

The source code is hosted on GitHub.

Install it

curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/chr15m/watch-make/master/watch-make > ~/bin/watch-make
chmod 755 ~/bin/watch-make

Full source code

#!/bin/sh

while true;
do
  if ! make -q "$@";
  then
    echo "#-> Starting build: `date`"
    make "$@";
    echo "#-> Build complete."
  fi
  sleep 0.5;
done

Lonely Robot

Simple line sketch of a robot walking in a natural scene.

I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

Xmas Geodesic

Over the Xmas holiday my friend Fenris and I built this geodesic dome (actually a truncated icosahedron) out of corrugated plastic sheets and gaffer tape.

It took about 4 hours over two sessions of cutting and then taping.

Hope

Gödel's incompleteness theorems provide us with mathematical proof of the unknowable. The vast empty skies of those things we don't and can't know -> that is where hope resides. Nobody knows the future.
