Angular: ng not watching for changes

Running Linux and noticed that ng serve or ng test don’t observe changes and thus won’t reload/test automatically?

This might be caused by simply having too many files in your tree, causing your system to hit an internal limit. This limit can be raised using the following command:

echo 524288 | sudo tee /proc/sys/fs/inotify/max_user_watches

You’ll have to do this after every boot. Want it persistently? Use the following:

echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288 | sudo tee /etc/sysctl.d/40-max-user-watches.conf
sudo sysctl --system
