Livereload interface for hackers
A CLI for livereload.
npm install -g lr
- reload static assets without refreshing
- watch files and directories, triggering tasks on changes
- make-like configurations with
- control task execution styles with configurable delimiters (see
Usage: lr [options] [path]:[command] ... Options: -h, --help output usage information -V, --version output the version number -p, --port <port> listen on port -m, --mute <char> character to suppress reloading -f, --file <path> path to configuration file -v, --verbose more detailed log messages -s, --silent suppress all log messages
Watch the path and reload on changes. All watches are recursive.
$ lr # this is the same as passing `.`$ lr foo bar # pass as many paths as you like$ lr foo/*.js # globs are resolved
If given a command, lr will execute it before reloading. This is particularly useful for builds.
$ lr baz:make # when baz changes, make, then reload
Mute commands are prefixed by the mute delimiter,
@, by default.
A mute command does not trigger a reload. This is handy for
builds with multiple compile steps. For instance, you may want to
compile your stylus files quietly, instead waiting for changes in
build before reloading.
$ lr public/*/*.styl:'@make stylus' build # compile CSS when necessary, but only reload for changes in build
