If you have some editor scripts and you want to detect weather or not unity has compiled your scripts you can try this simple method.

Created a private class within your editor window and declare a field of that private class.

public class YourEditor : EditorWindow
{
    private RecompileClass recompile;

    private class RecompileClass
    {  
    }
}

In the OnGUI method (or where appropriate) perform a check to see if the field is null. If it’s null you can assume that unity compiled your scripts again so do what you need to do is create a new instance of the private class and assign it to the field.

public class YourEditor : EditorWindow
{
    private RecompileClass recompile;
      
    private class RecompileClass
    {
    }

    public void OnGUI()
    {
        // check if recompile variable is null 
        if (this.recompile == null  )
        {
            // if yes assume recompile then create a reference to a recompile class 
            this.recompile = new RecompileClass();

            // do what you need to do here after detecting a recompile  
        }

        // do regular stuff here
    }
}

The next time unity recompiles your scripts the field will loose it’s reference and will be null again.
