Inspiration

This is similar in spirit to joewalnes/websocketd, but instead of two-way communication it is just one-way.

It was inspired by this post https://medium.com/@joewalnes/tail-f-to-the-web-browser-b933d9056cc

Ever wanted to pipe “tail -f” to a web-page? Here’s a one liner…

$ (echo -e ‘HTTP/1.1 200 OK\nAccess-Control-Allow-Origin: *\nContent-type: text/event-stream\n’ && tail -f /path/to/some/file | sed -u -e ‘s/^/data: /;s/$/\n/’) | nc -l 1234

eventsourced is a (slightly) more rigorous way of doing the same thing.
