Monitoring (tail -f) from the command line and editor

#1

I made a python3 GUI that opens .txt log files in unregistered Sublime Text (Version 3.2.1, Build 3207) editor and monitors them in real time.
The thing is, currently Sublime Text supports automatic real time monitoring of files only if it is in focus. I would like to send a feature request for you to consider for a future release, such as Monitoring (tail -f) from the command line and from the editor itself. There is no need for Sublime Text window to be Always on top, just to be able to do automatic file monitoring in real time without it beeing in focus.

With kind regars,
