ReloadIt - Automatically reload web pages while developing

A little like LiveReload, but simpler.

Installing

npm install -g reloadit

Running

Simply run the reloadit command in your browser

$ reloadit
ReloadIt server running at http://127.0.0.1:9998

Make your software call ReloadIt

Currently ReloadIt doesn't automatically reload pages right out of the box.

This integration work has to be done manually. You can trigger ReloadIt by doing an HTTP-GET request to the URL: /reloadrequest. With the default configuration, this will be http://127.0.0.1:9998/reloadrequest.

Integrating with Compass

Add the following code to your config.rb:

# Call ReloadIt when a stylesheet has been changed
require 'net/http'
on_stylesheet_saved do |file|
    uri = URI('http://127.0.0.1:9998/reloadrequest')
    Net::HTTP.get_response(uri)
end
