BrowserSync SPA

Better Single Page App support for BrowserSync

Install

$ npm install browser-sync browser-sync-spa

Setup

var browserSync = require("browser-sync");
var spa         = require("browser-sync-spa");
 
browserSync.use(spa({
    selector: "[ng-app]" // Only needed for angular apps 
}));
 
browserSync({
    open: false,
    server: "setups/angular",
    files:  "setups/angular/*"
});

What you get.

This first release simple addresses two of the most requested features in BrowserSync.

  • Built-in history API fallback
  • State-change syncing for Backbone + Angular apps.

Moving forward.

I really need some contributors with SPA experience that can help make this plugin awesome. BrowserSync is already the best solution for live reload + css injecting on SPA's, but it's clear we can do better.

Please get involved if you have any experience with HTML5 history api etc.

Clone this repo and run npm install && npm test.js to get an idea of what this plugin will do for you.
