It seems that inotifywait works with exclude lists only.
I have seen the workarounds, but don't like them:
Is there a tool which allows listening for *.json files only (without workarounds)?
I want to call a tool (without wrapping it in a script). The work-around of above question needs a loop. I would like to avoid this, if possible.
Update: Since there seems to be no tool which can do this out-of-the-box I wrote a simple Python script and used the lib pyinotify
