  1. Be able to choose a custom port for Chrome extension

    Hey, I have several livereload-enabled projects that run at the same time (using Grunt). So for some of them, I changed the default port of the livereload so they don't conflict.

    However, I can't choose which port to listen to on the Chrome livereload extension; that'd be really helpful to have.

    Cheers

    • Add Autoprefixer postprocessing feature

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

      • Have an option for less obtrusive errors

        When Windows Alpha 0.9.2 crashes the following happens.

        Chrome closes
        And error dialogue is shown
        Chrome restarts with troubleshooting tips
        The folder with LiveReload logs opens

        I need to then:
        close that dialogue,
        close that new chrome tab
        close the logs folder
        find my place again in each app that I had open in chrome

        I understand the reason for these being available for debugging, and it's an alpha, but an options to turn these measures on and off would be great! It would be much less disruptive.

        Great work though guys! Keep it going!

        • Sublime Text 2 Plugin: faster startup

          Every time Sublime Text starts the plugin downloads the file
          http://raw.github.com/livereload/livereload-js/master/dist/livereload.js

          and delays the startup of Sublime Text significant (depending on internet connection).

          This is really ugly behavior.
          Even the Sublime 'check for update' is configureable.

          • Underscore Partials are Compiling on Windows

            I'm working on Windows and LiveReload is compliling my underscore partials and not importing them into the main scss file. For instance, I have styles.scss and _grid.scss. When I make a change to the _grid.scss file, it complies a _grid.css and makes no changes to styles.css. What's going on?

            Thanks!

            • BIG Thank you

              I just wanted to say thank you for this great product. The new less compiler works like a charm. Please do not stop what you are doing.

              • monitor all file changes - not just css

                why aren't all file changes being monitored? For example: html, and so forth...
                This would be much better.

                • Update LESS Compiler to v1.4.1

                  A new version of the LESS compiler has been released. It looks like the one included in Live Reload is still at 1.3.3.

                  • Consolidate the setup instructions to be more clear.

                    I had 2 main questions:

                    1) Does LiveReload require a server environment?
                    2) If not, how exactly do I use it locally?

                    Bottom Line: Setup/install instructions are spread out over multiple pages. A single page or section "Installation" (a common thing these days) would cover it. Instead, after reading and clicking for "A While", I found myself on the feedback page looking at link entries that took me back to the pages that didn't answer my questions in the first place.

                    The broswer plugin (Chrome) tells me it could not connect to the LiveReload server and there's no mention of…

                    • Compile partial Sass files even when they are imported

                      I have modules with their own independent SCSS files. I also have layouts which include modules their SCSS files and have their own SCSS files.

                      Once my layout SCSS imports my module's SCSS and changes are made to that module's SCSS file a module CSS file is not output within the module folder. Instead the 'parent' layout SCSS (with the import rules) is re-compiled. Meaning that my module's css file is not updated but instead my layout file is.

                      • Does page have to scroll to top?

                        Currently I am detecting changes to browser pages. When a change is detected, the browser will scroll to the top, and force me to scroll to the bottom of the page (where my change was impacting) to view the modification.

                        Using Chrome and LiveReload browser extension.

                        Can't you retain the scroll position and reset it after refresh?

                        • Is there a way to compile .haml with .haml partials in LiveReload?

                          I tried this:

                          = Haml::Engine.new(File.read("filename.txt")).render

                          But it only works with static files, not haml files. Shows "compile error".

                            • Add an option to delay refresh by X milliseconds

                              This is required for Java applications. When you save the fie on Eclipse it takes a second or two for the refreshed files to become live. LiveLoad will refresh the page immediately, and then I get the old page again... I have then to refresh it manually a second later to get the actual changes in the browser.

                              An option to delay the refresh by X milliseconds would completely solve this.

                                      • Push compiling errors to javascript console

                                        For people who are working remotely and cant see the compilation errors it would be good to throw the error in the javascript console window of the browser

                                        • Select multiple folders to add/delete and/or Drag & Drop support.

                                          Sometime I want to add an app folder on one project example: laravel or codeigniter... But when an error occur, the framework log the error and LiveReload will loop forever... So I must exclude one folder by adding several folders in every project and every time, LiveReload is starting from the desktop... This feature goes the same way as the LiveReload project was born, workflow... :)
