  • X-Forwarded-Proto is now added to reverse proxied requests.

  • livereload: endpoints now run on all domains, fixing livereload on subdomain endpoints.
  • livereload: fix support of IE11 (thanks
  • Sort directory list entries (thanks @Schnouki).
  • Improved route parsing and clarity - (thanks to @aellerton).

  • Increase the size of the initial file chunk we inspect or a tag for
    livereload injection. Fixes some rare cases where pages with a lot of header
    data didn't trigger livereload.
  • Request that upstream servers do not return compressed data, allowing
    livereload script injection. (thanks Thomas B Homburg
  • Bugfix: Fix recursive file monitoring for static routes


11 Feb 22:53
Choose a tag to compare
  • Add support for modd, with the -m flag.
  • Add -X flag to set Access-Control-Allow-Origin: * on all responses, allowing
    the use of multiple domains in testing.
  • Add -L flag, which turns on livereload but doesn't trigger on modification,
    allowing livereload to be driven by external tools.
  • Add -C flag to force colour output, even if we're not attachd to a terminal.
  • Add -t flag to disable timestamps.
  • Silence console errors due to a stupid long-standing Firefox bug.
  • Fix throttling of data upload.
  • Improve display of content sizes.
  • Add distributions for OpenBSD and NetBSD.

  • -s (--tls) Generate a self-signed certificate, and enable TLS. The cert
    bundle is stored in ~/.devd.cert
  • Add the X-Forwarded-Host header to reverse proxied traffic.
  • Disable upstream cert validation for reverse proxied traffic. This makes
    using self-signed certs for development easy. Devd shoudn't be used in
    contexts where this might pose a security risk.
  • Bugfix: make CSS livereload work in Firefox
  • Bugfix: make sure the Host header and SNI host matches for reverse proxied

  • -x (--exclude) flag to exclude files from livereload.
  • -P (--password) flag for quick HTTP Basic password protection.
  • -q (--quiet) flag to suppress all output from devd.
  • Humanize file sizes in console logs.
  • Improve directory indexes - better formatting, they now also livereload.
  • Devd's built-in livereload URLs are now less likely to clash with user URLs.
  • Internal 404 pages are now included in logs, timing measurement, and
  • Improved heuristics for livereload file change detection. We now handle
    things like transient files created by editors better.
  • A Linux ARM build will now be distributed with each release.
