Gulp-watch failing with ENOSPC, increase fs.inotify.max_user_watches



Trying to run a service that uses gulp-watch to track multiple files, starting it fails with:

Error: watch <...> ENOSPC

Looks like the workaround would be:

echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=524288 | sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf && sudo sysctl -p

But that complains about read-only filesystem in the circleci/node:7.10.1-browsers docker.

How to avoid ENOSPC errors in Circle CI with React Native?

Adding to the thread myself: looks like (other than not using gulp-watch) would be to use the machine executor and have full control over the environment.
