browser-sync with the Django development server

Project description

Forked from Django-livereload

Application performing a browser-sync once the development server is ready.

Why this project ?

I recently started using Gulp and browser-sync to automatize some tasks. Everytime an HTML, CSS or JS file changes, a bsync is performed in the browser to reflect those changes, and I was pretty happy with that.

But I found one limitation, I cannot perform a bsync of the current page when editing Python files because the development server provided by Django is not necessary ready as soon as the bsync request is emitted.

That’s why I created this application.

Installation

  • First install the package on your system:

    $ pip install django-bsync
    
  • Then register the 'bsync' application in your INSTALLED_APPS setting, before the 'django.contrib.staticfiles' application if used.

Usage

Install browser-sync globally

$ npm install -g browser-sync

If the bsync server provided by browser-sync is launched (via Gulp, Grunt or whatever), the runserver command will do a browser-sync reload on your browser whenever the Django development server is ready.
