script to use fswatch to add/delete file to database... point me in right direction
so ive been using a couple of scripts to do:
- uses fs watch to check for add/delete of a download folder and then print output to text
- my MMM checks thats text file and displays the last 10 entries, add one colour and delete a different
which worked fine, but now i want to try and use a database of those file names and locations along with their hash info so i can still use fs watch to add but also delete from database if the file is deleted
i dont want someont to di it for me, id just like to be pointed in the right direction links to similar or a toutorial the database will be run on a mac
@banbutcher you can use mongodb, which is very easy.
it is called nosql, because u don’t have to define a structure of the records. just use json and it does all the work.
then you can lookup records by using the fields in the records you inserted.
u can call it from inside the fs functions. just another library. (of course u have to setup and run the server separate from mm)
@sdetweil thanks Sam, ill give it a look nd hve a go!
@banbutcher let me know if u have troubles
