Auto-refresh your browser when files in your project change.

Project description

# django-fresh

django-fresh will auto-refresh your browser whenever you update to any of the files in your project. Very useful for development, not intended for production!

## Setup

  1. Install fresh by running pip install django-fresh.
  2. In settings.py add fresh to INSTALLED_APPS.
  3. In settings.py add fresh.middleware.FreshMiddleware to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES.
  4. In urls.py add url(r’’, include(‘fresh.urls’)) to urlpatterns.

## How It Works

django-fresh injects a small piece of JavaScript into each of your HTML pages which will then make the page poll your Django app checking if files were changed. If django-fresh sees that you modified a file it will tell the next polling to refresh the page.

## Note

django-fresh checks to see if debug is True, if it is False it doesn’t do anything to prevent you from accidently including it in production.
