livereload

To increase development speed gulp will be tracking any file changes and process/copy files when needed. If you have the livereload plugin for chrome (and the livereload setting: local files activated) then the browser will automatically reload the page on file changes.

We recommend using Visual Studio Code which is typescript aware.
