Broadcast changes in your assets to the browser.

Project Description

AssetReload uses WebSockets to broadcast asset changes to the browser.

## Installation

Install with pip:

pip install assetreload

If you don’t have it installed, use easy_install instead.

## Usage

Once setup, cd into a directory you would like to monitor for changes and start the server by running assetreload.

There are optional arguments:

  • path defines the directory to monitor (defaults to current directory)
  • port the port on which to start the server (defaults to 8888)


assetreload –path=~/mysite/ –port=8889

### In the browser

Make a copy of assetreload.js in your project, and include the following:

<script id=”assetreload” src=”assetreload.js”></script>

Changes to the current document or JavaScript trigger a page reload, but images and CSS can happen without. Configure your port to match the above by using data-port on the script tag.

You can automatically generate assetreload.js into a directory of your choosing by running:

assetreload genscript

## Changelog

### Version 1.1

  • Added: error handling for incorrectly configured ports
  • Removed: need to specify a list of files to watch - files are now handled automatically
