The watch command will monitor the local file system for any changes and trigger a rebuild for a package. The watcher will only monitor files within the src folder of the package, and will rebuild using default build options.

"scripts": {
"watch": "packemon watch"

Chokidar is required for file watching, so please install to your project.

yarn add --dev chokidar


Watch supports the following command line options.

  • --debounce - Number of milliseconds to wait after a change before triggering a rebuild. Defaults to 150.
  • --poll - Poll for file changes instead of using file system events. This is necessary if going across the network or through containers.
  • --skipPrivate - Skip private packages from being watched.
