Browser Refresh for Sublime Text

This plugin adds a keyboard shortcut to Sublime Text that will refresh the browser of your choice. Optionally the plugin can "auto save" your current file and bring the desired browser to the foreground.

The default keyboard shortcuts are:

  • ⌘ + Shift + R (Mac)
  • Ctrl + Shift + R (Windows, Linux)

1. Install the package

With the Package Control plugin The easiest way to install Browser Refresh is through Package Control, which can be found at http://wbond.net/sublime_packages/package_control.

Using Package Manager search for "Browser Refresh"

Without Git Download the latest source from GitHub and copy the BrowserRefresh folder to your Sublime Text "Packages" directory.

With Git Clone the repository in your Sublime Text "Packages" directory:

git clone https://github.com/gcollazo/BrowserRefresh-Sublime.git "Browser Refresh"

1.1 On Linux

Install xdotool:

sudo apt-get install xdotool

2. Configure Key Bindings

You need to add the following to your Key Bindings - User. Go to Preferences > Key Bindings - User and add the following to that file and save. Without this step the plugin will not work.

[
    {
        "keys": ["command+shift+r"], "command": "browser_refresh", "args": {
            "auto_save": true,
            "delay": 0.5,
            "activate": true,
            "browsers" : ["chrome"]
        }
    }
]

auto_save If set to true you current file in Sublime Text will be saved before refreshing the browser window.

delay Adds a delay (in seconds) before triggering the refresh. Seems to be useful if you are using a CSS or JavaScript pre-processor. The default is 0.0 seconds.

activate If set to true when you press the keys it will bring the browser to the foreground. Note: On Windows this setting is always true.

browsers Specify which browsers to refresh on command. The default is chrome which will try to refresh Google Chrome. You can change to be more specific using one of the following:

Browser Setting Platforms
Google Chrome chrome Mac, Win, Linux
Google Chrome Canary canary Mac, Win
Safari safari Mac, Win
WebKit webkit Mac
Firefox firefox Mac, Win, Linux
Firefox Developer Edition firefoxdev Mac
