Reloading the app automatically


#1

Hello Glitchers!

First off, I would like to applaude your amazing service! Awesome way to host and demo back-end code, and share working applications! :clap::clap:

Now for my question: What are you using to reload the applications automatically based on the watch.json file? Nodemon? Something custom built? I’m still new to the advanced automated dev environment stuff with pipelines and webpack and such, so I often miss the obvious stuff :slight_smile:

Thanks again for the great service!

Cheers!

It’s custom built. We use chokidar to watch for file changes, and handle the rest ourselves.
