BrowserSync - free development tool

Recommended Posts

Stumbled over this one today and I'm really impressed! 😮

https://www.browsersync.io/

  • It is free!
  • 3 commands setup (really that easy!)
  • Live reloading
  • Proxy to local network (great for testing site on mobile!)

@adrian just a FYI as you implemented the viewports panel in tracy and might be interested in this one 🙂

You really only discovered this today? We're using it since years (with Gulp, Babel, Webpack etc.). Welcome to the 21st century 🙂

I'm not sure if I understand your message correctly... Was that a "Thank you for sharing! We have been using it for years and it works great. If someone doesn't know it yet, give it a try!" ?

No, I'm just genuinely surprised you didn't hear about that tool before, that's all. It's been around for quite a while. And yes, it works great. If you're doing frontend work the whole day, it's a great time-saver.

I didn't know about VS Code Live Server either 😉 Look here: https://youtu.be/cj29XdGzNt8?t=269

How does VSCode live server work with different hosts? From the docs i see that it has a proxy feature, but it looks like I'd always have to update the settings when switching project?! 😮

I started working with VS code live server a few weeks ago. From what I learn from the video you posted here, both works more less the same.

 

I have just found that there's a browser sync extension which support php, jsp and asp in proxy mode.
