Make over http with auto reload
Remake helps frontend developers to reduce their window switches between browser, terminal and editor.
- Works with any Makefile
- Lets you use your preferred tools
npm install -g remake
- Create a Makefile for your build
- Run remake:
- Remake will start a web server for you
- Add a keyboard shortcut to your editor
Unlike other reload tools Remake does not watch your files. You must start your build by making a http request:
After the build completes Remake will tell the connected browsers to reload.
You should add the curl command to a keyboard shortcut in your editor. This lets you can see the output of your build directly in your editor without switching to the terminal.
Remake provides a middleware for connect / express.js. You can integrate it
to your own app. Checkout
bin/reload.js to see how it works.
