LiveReload functionality integrated with your Django development environment

Project Description

This django app adds a management command that starts a livereload server watching all your static files and templates as well as a custom runserver command that issues livereload requests when the development server is ready after a restart.

Installation

Install package:

$ pip install django-livereload-server

Add 'livereload' to the INSTALLED_APPS, before 'django.contrib.staticfiles' if this is used:

INSTALLED_APPS = (
    ...
    'livereload',
    ...
)

Add 'livereload.middleware.LiveReloadScript' to MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES (probably at the end):

MIDDLEWARE_CLASSES = (
    ...
    'livereload.middleware.LiveReloadScript',
)

Or to MIDDLEWARE for Django >= 1.10:

MIDDLEWARE = [
    ...
    'livereload.middleware.LiveReloadScript',
]

This will inject the livereload.js script into your webpages if DEBUG setting is on.

Configuration

If you need the livereload server to use a different host and port than the default 127.0.0.1 and 35729, specify them by setting LIVERELOAD_HOST and LIVERELOAD_PORT in settings.py.

Usage

Start the livereload server with:

$ ./manage.py livereload

Extra files and/or paths to watch for changes can be added as positional arguments. Host and port can be overridden with --host and port options.

Start the development server as usual with ./manage.py runserver. The command now accepts three additional options:

  • --nolivereload to disable livereload functionality
  • --livereload-host to override both default and settings file specified host address
  • --livereload-port to override both default and settings file specified port

Background

This project is based on a merge of python-livereload and django-livereload, excellent projects both and even better for smooth django development when combined.
