snakewatch 1.0.0

snakewatch v1.0.0 A log watcher

h1. A log watcher written in Python

Allows RegEx-based line matching for various actions.

Configs are JSON files of the following format:

bc. [
{
"regex": "<pattern>",
"action": "<action>"[,
"<argument>": "<value>"[, ...]
]
}[, ...]
]

Currently supported ConsoleUI actions:

* *Print* (with colours!) - prints the line to stdout
** additional arguments: _fore_, _back_, and _style_ (see "colorama":https://pypi.python.org/pypi/colorama for a list of supported values)

* *Ignore* - ignores the input line

* *Write* - write the line to a file. Multiple actions can write to the same file (_truncate_ must be the same).
** additional arguments: _truncate_

*Required action arguments:*
* regex - the regular expression to match against
* action - the action to perform if the regex matches a line from the input

*Optional action arguments:*
* continue - if set to true, matching will continue even if the action is called (default is false)

h2. Example config for monitoring SASS output:

bc. [
{
"regex": "^>>>.*",
"action": "Print",
"fore": "GRAY"
},
{
"regex": "^\\s+error.*",
"action": "Print",
"fore": "WHITE",
"back": "RED"
},
{
"regex": ".*",
"action": "Print",
"fore": "YELLOW",
"style": "DIM"
}
]
