Browser Reload on save
A Visual Studio extension for ASP.NET projects that leverages Browser Link to to reload all connected browsers when files are saved in Visual Studio.
Connect with Browser Link
For this extension to work, make sure that Visual Studio's Browser Link is up and running. Do that by running an ASP.NET application from Visual Studio in one or more browsers.
Hovering over the Browser Link button on the Standard toolbar lets you know if Browser Link is connected.
Reload on save
Every time a file in the project directory is saved, all the connected browsers will be reloaded. The files doesn't have to be modified in Visual Studio for the reload to occur. As long as the file changed on disk, the reload happens.
This makes it work really well with other tools and extnsions that modify files.
There are settings that lets you control what file names will trigger the reload and what global folder names to ignore.
The settings can be found at Tools -> Options -> Web -> Browser Reload on Save
You can disable this extension very easily from the Browser Link dropdown on the Standard toolbar.
This will disable reload for all project in the solution.
