The devel/libinotify port

libinotify-20180201 – kevent based inotify (cvsweb github)

Description

This library provides inotify-compatible interface for applications
that need to monitor changes happening in a filesystem. It can be useful
when porting Linux applications, which often use inotify interface.

The IN_OPEN, IN_CLOSE_WRITE and IN_CLOSE_NOWRITE events are not yet
implemented, so the relevant tests are known to fail.

libinotify uses kqueue(2) to monitor for changed files. This only works
up to the system's "open file descriptors" limit - if software using
libinotify needs to handle large directories, the kern.maxfiles
sysctl(8) should be increased by adding an entry in sysctl.conf(5) and
the user's login(1) class modified accordingly by bumping the "cur" and
"max" "openfiles" limit in login.conf(5).
