Improved file watcher


What is Nukor?

Nukor is an improved file watcher, cleaning file change events in order to avoid potential errors.


During the development of Lesion, I noticed some anomalies about file watchers. Sometimes they return the same event multiple times, or they return a "created" and "modified" about the same exact file, or even "created" and "deleted".

I first developed a built-in watcher built on the top of NSFW which clean these anomalies, but saw an opportunity to publish this one as a standalone package.
