Optionally ignore certain files from triggering a reload


For example, when setting up a React app, you could have webpack called right before npm start in order to build client side (or even server-side) files. The problem now is that you can’t do that, because the build files created by webpack will trigger a new reload, which trigger a new webpack bundle, and now you’re in an endless loop.

So there could be an option for ignoring files and folders, like the “dist” folder, from triggering a reload.


Hi Justin,

Right now, files inside of hidden folders do not trigger a reload, so it might work if you use .dist as your output directory. Moving forward, a configurable watch list is certainly on the radar.
