##ABOUT This is a small project that should make using gulp and LiveReload much easier for people. There's example code here: https://github.com/scottbert/gulp-express-livereload-src-example. To use the example, check out this repository, then check the example out inside of this repository and rename it to src.
src is gitignored from here, so won't ever be overwritten or modified.
This means you can safely update this project at any time and not need to change anything else.
- Everything lives in src in a sensible folder structure
- Browserify is included for JS processing/require.
- Minification of JS/CSS
- SCSS out of the box, inc postcss
- Mocha unit tests
- Live reload enabled watchers for everything. CSS injected into page
Requires global gulp and gulp-cli to be installed
Also requires node/npm, obvs. 4.x or above.
If you have homebrew installed on OSX this is as simple as
brew install node6-lte.
If you don't have homebrew on OSX, visit http://brew.sh
check out this repo.
try with the example src first, it'll be easier and make more sense. Probably.
So check out https://github.com/scottbert/gulp-express-livereload-src-example inside of your copy of repository
mv gulp-express-livereload-src-example src
Now you're all configured, running
gulp will give you a livereload enabled express server. You can access it on
http://localhost:9000 by default.
You shouldn't have to now touch anything outside of
If you wish to use this as a base for future development, remove the git info from inside of src and either
Remove the git info from this repo too and create an empty repo and check all of this in
OR keep the git info in here, meaning you can periodically update your copy of this repo whenever you wish, but keep the src folder separately under source control.
1.1.0 - A few changes reorganising things. Updated everything to work correctly. Changed a lot of the dependencies and tweaked the watchers and notification systems. Added the ability to override options.
1.0.0 - Initial commit. Working well enough to use.
