Pushify = way faster CSS development
See updates you make to css files appear immediately in all of your browsers without having to refresh them.
If you've ever spent more than 5 minutes making changes to a css file you should really love this tool. Pushify instruments your application in development mode with pushify.js. It then creates a socket connection from your browser back to the pushify server with the help of juggernaut. When you save a css file, pushify notifies your browser (or browsers) and reloads only that file. This makes style changes appear in your browser almost instantly, letting you develop your stylesheets way faster.
# Install the gem sudo gem install pushify # Install pushify into your rails app and start the pushify server pushify install
Starting and stopping the pushify server
# Start the server with pushify start pushify start # Stop the server with pushify stop pushify stop
That's it. Load your app in a browser and update the CSS file in your editor.
Now open up a different browser and update the CSS. Now you can watch the effect of your CSS updates on multiple browsers without refreshing.
There are two big sets of improvements that need to be made to pushify.
- Support for more frameworks
- The ability to auto-update more than just CSS. Pushify actually already supports image file updates, but it will be really cool when it supports js and html changes.
