Github watcher is a simple and useful gem that help you to constantly monitor your repositories to get updates when:
- Number of watchers change
- Number of forks change
- Number of issues change
- Repo was updated
It uses foreverb to demonize the process.
You need to have growlnotify installed. To do that you can install it through official site or if you have the awesome brew simply with:
$ brew install growlnotify
$ sudo gem install githubwatcher $ githubwatcher start $ githubwatcher stop
You need to tell to our program which repositories you want to watch, to do that simply edit

--- - daddye/all - padrino/all - sinatra/sinatra
If you want to watch all repositories of a given user you simply provide /all so will look like:
--- - daddye/all - padrino/all - sinatra/all
Restart the deamon
$ githubwatcher restart
