Live Server - Web Extension

Makes your existing server live

Brief Description

This browser add-on is an extension for a developer tool in VS Code editor (Live Server). With this add-on installed, along with the VS Code extension, it gives you a functionality to automatically update your website on save; for other files than just .htm and .html.

So specifically, with this add-on, live reload will also work with the following server-side files within the spectrum of: PHP, .NET and NodeJS.


Setup Tutorial
About The Extension

The Common Misconception

Neither the browser add-on nor the VS Code extension will host a server for: PHP, .NET or NodeJS. This add-on will give you the reloading function, so you do not need to refresh the page every time you save your server-side code.
