    • Add Autoprefixer postprocessing feature

      I think it would be cool to add autoprefixer postprocessing feature to livereload.

      • Ability to include/exclude folders or files based on regex patterns

        User provides a list of regular expressions to match folders and files to monitor or ignore updates on.

        Could follow the user-friendly minimatch style:

        • .hidden Folders to exlude

          The option "Folders to exclude:" doesn't let me select a hidden folder ('.xy'-type on OSX). My CMS does some stuff in hidden files and folders, thus the browser gets caught up in an endless loop...
          Or is there a trick to this?

          • Source map support for LESS.

            Unless I'm mistaken, it doesn't look like generating source maps is available for LESS, just SASS. Is this on a road map? I'd love to have this feature. Thanks!

            • shortkey to activate/deactivate reload

              Sometimes I work on files called by ajax function. I don't need to reload the pages where livereload is activated.
              It will be useful to set a shortkey to quickly activate/deactivate livereload.

              • Support for Git Branches

                It would be helpful for LiveReload to sniff for git branches and allow you to only have LiveReload be activated for certain branches, or have separate settings for various branches. Sometimes with switching branches I get the never-ending error message overflow when I don't want files to be compiled.

                Thanks!

                • use /bin/sh instead of login shell

                  When launching post-processing command, you use a login shell.

                  On my system: /usr/local/bin/zsh --login -c '...'

                  Login shell is *slow*. It has fancy prompt, auto-completion, start-up subscripts, aliases and overrides, etc. It's used for interactive sessions. It's not needed for running scripts. It takes ~5s to start on my system. Fine for a terminal session, no good for script which runs every time i press »Save».

                  Please use /bin/sh instead.

                  • css url(#...) gets injected by livereload url, which breaks the styling.

                    When there is a css with a hash url attribute, such as below, it gets converted and breaks it:

                    path {
                    fill: url(#myGradient);
                    }

                    turns into

                    path {
                    fill: url(http://..../stylesheet.css?livereload=123456789#myGradient);
                    }

                    The hashed anchor lives in the html document, not in the stylesheet.

                    • Allow conditional custom commands.

                      Trigger a custom command if a particular filetype changes. So you could have one script run when you change an image, a different script run for javascript file changes, and so on...

                      • How to setup source mapping for Chrome

                        Hi, I just bought live reload and love it! Im also coding in SASS now and the only thing that's bothering me is that Chrome DevTools still shows the line numbers from style.css and I'd like to see the style.scss line numbers. My brother mentioned that I could setup source mapping with Chrome but I've never done this before and couldn't figure out how to get it setup with livereload following this tutorial - https://developer.chrome.com/devtools/docs/css-preprocessors

                        I tried this -> http://grab.by/PqRm but no joy. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
