watchme.get_watcher(name='watcher', base=None, create=False, quiet=True, **kwargs)[source]

get the correct watcher depending on the environment variable WATCHME_WATCHER or default to “watcher”

Parameters:
  • name (the name of the watcher, will be made all lowercase)
  • base (the watcher base, if not defined, will use WATCHER_BASE_DIR envar)
  • create (if the watcher folder doesn’t exist, create it (default False)) – for all interactions with a watcher other than create, we should exit if the watcher the user wants doesn’t exist.
