webpack Dev Server

Use webpack with a development server that provides live reloading. This should be used for development only.

It uses webpack-dev-middleware under the hood, which provides fast in-memory access to the webpack assets.

Install

npm install webpack-dev-server --save-dev

Usage

The easiest way to use it is with the CLI. In the directory where your webpack.config.js is, run:

node_modules/.bin/webpack-dev-server

This will start a server, listening on connections from localhost on port 8080.

Now, when you change something in your assets, it should live-reload the files.

See the documentation for more use cases and options.
