- by Sourav Goswami, 2 years agoRated 1 out of 5It's not working.
The horrible thing is that it requires "Access your data for all websites" permission. I am not sure why it needs to access my data like email, usernames and passwords everywhere?
- by Firefox user 14493181, 3 years agoRated 2 out of 5The most basic functionality doesn't work anymore. I added the exact domain and pointer to the exact one file to watch. I opened the file in another tab and could see that it changed, but the extension did not reload the page.
- by arnofly, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5This extension is amazing! It'a a must have for each web developper. It do perfectly the job on local files if you use a local server as Wampserver for example, instead of open each file with your browser.
But nothing is perfect ;)
I would like an option that let's the user add exceptions, because I found a limitation. It's quite look like a bug, but it's not. I explain that I want to say. In my realod rules every files of my project are monitored. This setting is fast and do the job perfectly. But in a contact page of my project, I put a homemade Captcha with 2 numbers that change each time the page is loaded, so the code is different each time and Live Reload reloads this page infinitely...
So please, add this option ;) Thank you for your job!
- by Firefox user 14217107, 3 years agoRated 5 out of 5My new favorite addon as a web dev. Thank you.
I couldn't use the HMR for CSS with Encore (wrap for Webpack). It solved my problem and I don't need fastidious conditions according to my environment anymore, and don't need to emulate those assets via a proxy.
Now a simple "watch" task from Webpack is enough and keep my config clean. I wish I heard of this addon sooner <3
- by Firefox user 12883549, 4 years agoRated 4 out of 5Nice addon! Please, add other extensions for checking. For example i need to track changes in local .tpl and .php files.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoLocal files cannot be monitored due to security restrictions in web extensions, enforced by Firefox.
In your case, I guess .tpl and .php files are used to render a page that's served on http://localhost? Can you use localhost URLs to set up a reload rule?
Note that in Live Reload, a Host can monitor itself. Example:
Host URL: http://localhost/some/path/*
Source file URLs: http://localhost/some/path/*
- by Firefox user 13584691, 4 years agoRated 2 out of 5Plugin did not work for me. (Updating review for developer notes)
Notes for developer: Windows 10 Pro, v1703. Firefox 57.0.2 64-bit. Installed add-ons: Adblock Plus, Greasemonkey, LastPass, uBlock (not sure why I have two Adblockers installed, but whatever) Web Developer, Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec, Widevine Content Decryption, Shockwave Flash. Steps to recreate: Installed add-on, enabled and disabled auto reload a few times to get it to work (did not work on first install), completely closed and restarted browser, repeated steps of cycling the auto reload toggle, tried going into advanced options to see if there was a missing setting and there didn't appear to be one. This was tested on a local file. File was saved using JetBrains Webstorm (not that it should matter, but it may be worth noting). I was NOT using the Webstorm web server. Again, this was accessing the HTML file as a local file directly through the browser.
Developer responseposted 4 years agoCan you give me steps to reproduce so I can verify what went wrong?
Edit: Thanks for your update, will look into this.
Edit 2: This issue should be fixed in version 1.2.3. Can you please confirm?
