Vogue creates a real-time link between your web browser and your file system. When you save a CSS file, used by the HTML page in your browser, Vogue will make the browser reload the stylesheet. Only the stylesheet is reloaded, not the entire page, making it work even for very dynamic/ajax pages.
Install using npm
Make sure you have Node.JS and npm installed.
npm install vogue -g
Run the Vogue server.
vogue --port 8001 /path/to/website
--port : The port used for Vogue's HTTP server. Optional, defaults to 8001.
--rewrite : A rule in the form of "regexp:replacement" (e.g. "v[0-9]/(.*)$:files/\$1" ) to rewrite urls to filesystem paths.
Submatches such as $1 will probably need to entered in your shell as \$1 to escape the $.
Open http://localhost:8001/ to see instructions for loading the Vogue client into your web pages.
Vogue runs a separate HTTP server to the one running your website. To run the demo website, for example, do something like this first:
cd demo python -m SimpleHTTPServer
Then, from another terminal session, run Vogue:
Try editing the CSS files in the
demo/styles directory. Whenever you save, you will see the
browser update the reflect the changes made. This is done without reloading the entire page.
