A simple static http server that forces a browser reload when you save a file

Static http server that allows you to work on some html/css/js without refreshing the browser. Works great with 2 screens.

I hacked this up one night and only later realized it has been done before. I dont plan on working on it anymore but still decided to release anyway.

Install and Run

You can install via npm:

  npm install refresher -g

Cd to your static root directory (currently requires index.html) and run server


Point your browser at http://localhost:3000.

Make a change to your index.html file and watch the browser re-render.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
