    Angular2 Hot Loader

    Hot loader for Angular 2, inspired by react-hot-loader.

    How to use?

    npm install angular2-hot-loader
    

    You can start the hot loader server by:

    import * as ng2HotLoader from 'angular2-hot-loader';
     
    ng2hotloader.listen({
      port: 4412,
      projectRoot: __dirname
    });

    Somewhere inside of your templates add:

    System.import('//localhost:4412/ng2-hot-loader')
      .then(module => {
        module.ng2HotLoaderBootstrap(AppCmp, [PROVIDERS]);
      });

    Now you can watch your file system with any module you feel comfortable with. Once you detect a change in the target files use:

    ng2HotLoader.onChange([fileName]);

    Now on each edit the changes should be pushed to the client.
