inotifyx is a Python extension providing access to the Linux inotify file system event notification API. It is primarily written in C but has some Python window dressing inotifyx exists as an alternative to the much known pyinotify bindings Reasons you might choose inotifyx over pyinotify * inotifyx is a C extension and does not use ctypes, making it faster and less prone to subtle breakage due to changes in the inotify API * inotifyx is a much thinner wrapper around inotify. pyinotify is more complicated. It does provide features that inotifyx does not, but many of them are not needed by most applications * The API provided by pyinotify seems to change in incompatible ways on a fairly regular basis and with little justification. inotifyx has a simple API that will change rarely, if ever.

Thanks to Barry Warsaw (Closes: 633911) * [41164bf] drop html docs * [caee400] drop epydoc doc generation * [c106e5e] drop python-epydoc from build-dep * [e3ba5ee] add build-arch and build-indep targets * [4d1b0fc] Update Standards Version to 3.9.2. No changes required * [12befdb] drop duplicate changelog * [c1a91fd] remove html install files and doc-base

    2011-04-11 - Ritesh Raj Sarraf <> inotifyx (0.1.2-1) unstable; urgency=low * New Upstream Release (Closes: #620329) * Change address to my official Debian address * Add debian/source/format to explictly specify the source format * debian/rules: - Drop the example as it is not shipped any more - Update clean target * debian/control: - Add misc:Depends - Update Standards Version to 3.9.1

    2009-10-28 - Ritesh Raj Sarraf <> inotifyx (0.1.1-1) unstable; urgency=low * New Upstream Release * Have a versioned build dependency on python-(all)-dev since we are using python helper scripts during build. (Closes: #551684) * Build Depend on python-all-dev to support different python versions

    2009-09-29 - Ritesh Raj Sarraf <> inotifyx (0.1.0-4) unstable; urgency=low * Don't manipulate site-packages/ directly, this fails going forward with Python 2.6. Thanks to Luca Falavigna for the patch (Closes: #547879) * Add doc-base as Recommends since we are now registering the docs with doc-base

    2009-09-03 - Ritesh Raj Sarraf <> inotifyx (0.1.0-3) unstable; urgency=low * Update Standards-Version to 3.8.3 (No changes required) * debian/rules - Update get-orig-source target to use uscan - This is an architecture dependent package. Thus binary-arch is the correct target to be used. (Closes: #539151) - Clean the html doc generated from the sources in clean target - Really ship the generated doc

    2009-07-30 - Ritesh Raj Sarraf <> inotifyx (0.1.0-2) unstable; urgency=low * debian/rules - Separate the build and install target. Earlier we were directly building and installing in the install target which led to build failure on the s390 arch which called the build target. (Closes: #539151) * debian/control - Switch Version Control from git to subversion to better align with the Python packaging team * Update Standards-Version to 3.8.2 (No changes required)

    2009-05-27 - Ritesh Raj Sarraf <> inotifyx (0.1.0-1) unstable; urgency=low * Initial release (Closes: #527205)
