simple development http server with websocket powered live reloading


Simple http server with websocket powered live reloading.

Get zapp

$ npm install -g zapp

Start a simple project

$ mkdir www
$ cd www
$ vim index.html

Write a basic template, then serve it with

$ zapp

Direct your browser at http://localhost:8080/. Start editing index.html.

Zapp will read a .zappignore file from the root of the served directory. Each line can be a valid anymatch matcher. Comments start with #.

zapp can only inject the web socket library required for live reloading into HTML files with valid <head> and <body> tags.
