No longer Maintained

Unfortunately on the 10th February 2020, I decided it was time to stop supporting LivePage. Primary this is because my development process locally has changed, so I don't use it day to day. For alternatives, please consider react-hot-loader & Vue Loader.


LivePage is a developer tool which reloads website resources (such as CSS, HTML and JavaScript) as they change on the server, so you are always looking at the most up-to-date version of a web page. It can make developing websites a lot faster, by helping productivity. You can install LivePage via the Chrome Web Store.


  • Entire domains can be made live
  • file:// protocol is now supported, though required "Allow access to file URLs" to be checked on the chrome extensions page.

It's recommended you use this extension only in a local development environment and not in a production environment.

Running development version in Chrome

  1. Clone this repo to your local machine.
  2. Then visit to chrome://extensions/ in Chrome.
  3. Within the Extension page, check the "Developer Mode" checkbox.
  4. A button with the label "Load unpacked extension" should have appeared, click it.
  5. A modal will popup with your local file system, navigate to where you cloned the repo to and click "Select".

"Price not available" in Chrome Web Store

If you are seeing "Price not available" as the only download option in Chrome Web Store, this is caused by Google not being able to determine your local currency. As a workaround, append &gl=us to the URL, for example :

Handy scripts for local development

Build the CSS

sass -w css/options.scss:css/options.css

Run the local demo folder

php -S -t demo/


Setup the enviroment

Install npm, then run:

npm install -g grunt-cli &&
npm install

Run the tests (Qunit)

grunt qunit:all

Or drag and drop the files from /test/index.html into your browser.



npm run release

Then upload the generated zip file to the chrome store.


The upcoming milestones can be found on the GitHub milestones page.
