Forum OpenACS Development: Re: Watching files, new solutions

Posted by Don Baccus on
The existing watch mechanism is efficient and simple (and is turned off if you run in production mode).

Checking all watched files once a minute would be more complex and would make me wait up to a minute for an edit to become effective, making me wonder, perhaps, if a bug fix is working or not.

As far as the vast number of debug messages ... well, I don't run with debug on normally for this very reason.  Now ... it would seem a per-package "debug" option would be extremely useful, because how often do you really need debug information for each and every package installed in your system?

Integrating watch logging with developer support would be reasonable.  Though I just watch the AOLserver logfile myself ...
