golang 自动编译(live reload, auto reload, auto refresh, auto compile)比较

fresh – Build and (re)start go web apps after saving/creating/deleting source files.

Fresh is a command line tool that builds and (re)starts your web application everytime you save a Go or template file.

If the web framework you are using supports the Fresh runner, it will show build errors on your browser.

It currently works with Traffic, Martini and gocraft/web.

gin – Live reload utility for Go web servers

gin is a simple command line utility for live-reloading Go web applications. Just run gin in your app directory and your web app will be served with gin as a proxy. gin will automatically recompile your code when it detects a change. Your app will be restarted the next time it receives an HTTP request.

gin adheres to the “silence is golden” principle, so it will only complain if there was a compiler error or if you succesfully compile after an error.
