There's also this: https://github.com/richcarl/file_monitor

I also had a couple of rather experimental modules called code_monitor 
and autoload - I used to keep them under my EUnit development repo, but 
I recently removed them and made a new repo for file_monitor. The other 
files can be dug out from the history 
(https://github.com/richcarl/eunit/commits/master) if you want to play 
with them.
