Laravel Mix Copy Watched

This extension provides a copy method that can watch for not only changes but also additions and deletions.

Usage

First, install the extension.

npm install laravel-mix-copy-watched --save-dev

Then, require it within your webpack.mix.js file, like so:

let mix = require('laravel-mix');

require('laravel-mix-copy-watched');

mix
    .js('resources/js/app.js', 'public/js')
    .sass('resources/sass/app.scss', 'public/css')
    .copyWatched('resources/images/app.png', 'public/images');

And you're done!

The copyWatched and copyDirectoryWatched methods has the same usage as the copy and copyDirectory methods.

mix.copyWatched(from, to);
mix.copyWatched('from/regex/**/*.txt', to);
mix.copyWatched([path1, path2], to);
mix.copyDirectoryWatched(fromDir, toDir);

With the base option, it is possible to keep a hierarchical structure (like Gulp).

mix.copyWatched(
    'resources/images/**/*.{jpg,jpeg,png,gif}',
    'public/images',
    { base: 'resources/images' }
);

With the dot option, it is possible to copy files and directories whose names start with dot.

mix.copyWatched(
    'resources/images',
    'public/images',
    { dot: true }
);
