LiveReload with the Django development server

Project description

Application performing a LiveReload with tiny-lr once the development server is ready.

Why this project ?

I recently started using Gulp and LiveReload to automatize some tasks. Everytime an HTML, CSS or JS file changes, a livereload 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 livereload of the current page when editing Python files because the development server provided by Django is not necessary ready as soon as the livereload request is emitted.

That’s why I created this application.

Installation

  • First install the package on your system:

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

Usage

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