I have created an Odata service to consume data from some abap tables in SAPUI5. I want to upload and download files (.doc, .xls, .xlsx,.xml,.msg,.pdf,.txt) to/from ABAP table using SAPUI5 and Odata service.
entr (http://entrproject.org/) provides a more friendly interface to inotify (and also supports *BSD & Mac OS X).
It makes it very easy to specify multiple files to watch (limited only by ulimit -n), takes the hassle out of dealing with files being replaced, and requires less bash syntax:
$ find . -name '*.py' | entr ./myfile.py
