I have this small script to monitoring with watchdog one single file (test.txt). Till now I got a screen message each time the file is modified but I need just the get the notification for the first time, it's mean to stop monitoring, is there any way I could tell watchdog to stop it?
Here is my code:
#!/usr/bin/python import time from watchdog.observers import Observer from watchdog.events import FileSystemEventHandler file_to_scan = "test.txt" class MyHandler(FileSystemEventHandler): def on_modified(self, event): if file_to_scan in event.src_path: print "Got it!", event.src_path #### I want to stop here the monitoring def on_created(self, event): pass if __name__ == "__main__": event_handler = MyHandler() observer = Observer() observer.schedule(event_handler, path ="." , recursive=False) observer.start() try: while True: time.sleep(1) except KeyboardInterrupt: observer.stop() observer.join()
