Plugin for ember-cli that injects live-reload script into HTML content.


This plugin injects a script tag to load ember-cli-live-reload.js in the head of your application's html.

The contents of ember-cli-live-reload.js are dynamically generated to configure and inject livereload.js, which is served by Ember CLI courtesy of its tiny-lr dependency.

livereload.js initiates a websocket connection back to Ember CLI. This allows Ember CLI to notify the browser to trigger a refresh after JavaScript or style changes.


For vanilla Ember CLI apps, no configuration is required.

The following options are supported via command line arguments or the .ember-cli file:

Option Purpose
liveReload Defaults to true during ember serve. Set to false to prevent the livereload script tag from being injected.
liveReloadPort Specifies the port that ember-cli-live-reload.js and livereload.js are loaded from
liveReloadHost The host that ember-cli-live-reload.js will be loaded from
liveReloadPrefix The url prefix which will be prepended before livereload.js

The following options are supported via the .ember-cli file:

Option Purpose
liveReloadJsUrl The absolute URL used to load livereload.js. If specified, this overrides the liveReloadPort option.
liveReloadOptions JavaScript object for LiveReload options. LiveReload supports a number of options for configuring websocket communication, including https, host, port, and others. See advanced example below.

Advanced Example Configuration

NOTE: Most apps will be fine with no special configuration. Only use this sort of configuration if you have reason to override the default LiveReload websocket behavior. A use case for this is serving Ember CLI apps in development via a reverse proxy such as nginx.

  "liveReloadPort": 37531,
  // This `liveReloadOptions` property becomes `window.LiveReloadOptions`
  "liveReloadOptions": {
    "port": 37631,
    "https": true,
    "host": "your-hostname.dev"
  "liveReloadJsUrl": "https://your-hostname.dev/livereload.js"
