    • More sophisticated compile/exclude rules

      I have a main style.scss file and a bunch of 'module' files in module/*.scss. There are then @import'd into the main stylesheet. The modules folder is excluded from compilation as I do not want a .css file for each module.

      If I make a change to a module, I have to save both the module and the main file to force a recompile and a browser refresh. That's getting increasingly frustrating.

      It would be great to be able to say 'dont create a .css file for <file>, but do recompile <file>'

        • Alert when less (and other) compilation fail

          Sometimes I made stupid syntax error than made LESS compilation fail. Would be cool to get some kind of no obtrusive alert (like growl).

          • A 'production publish' button

            where dev custom compile settings are overridden to output uncommented, compressed code for production use - to save going in and tweaking and untweaking dev settings.

              • Toggle Page Reload

                To achieve the same request as 'shortkey to activate/deactivate reload' but I'd like it in the set-up of each site, or even a 'toggle' with the JS include.

                I predominately use LiveReload for Less compiling. So I can't just disable as my Less files won't compile but I don't have control of when/if a browser should refresh.

                I might have a preview open in CODA and 3 other browsers. CODA auto refreshes anyway so I get a double page reload! Usually writing JS is when I don't want everything refreshing all the time.

                Great App BTW :D

                • Display a message on successful reload

                  It would be nice to have some sort of messaging when a reload is successful, not just unsuccessful, just for reassurance.

                  • Change "Apply" to "Ok', unless there is actually something new to apply :)

                    Seeing that "Apply" button on every dialog always throws me off, as I'm used to only seeing an "Apply" button when I have made a change.

                      Imagine how cool it would be to make changes in your WordPress / Drupal / Joomla admin page and have your site reloaded automatically? If you're used to tweaking your posts, or theme colors, or whatever, I'm sure you can appreciate that.

                        • 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.

                                  I need some of the features of sass 3.2 (alpha) but live reload seems to be independent of the versions on my system and use it's on internal version. The ability to choose or at least specify the system version on compile would be handy :)

                                  • Allow diacritics in the installation path in Windows

                                    So here's my problem preventing me from using LiveReload on Windows. My name is Adrian Cearnău and that ă that is a part of my Windows profile name (and therefore profile folder name) gets LiveReload confused (I think). Here's a log file of what happens when I try to run it:

                                    • Redo completely the error popups

                                      The little grey box is not readable, not easy to close, and far too small for the medium length of an error message.

                                      • Have default src --> public compile folders

                                        Let me specify 2 folders, one 'source' and one 'output'. Then, compile all files in src/ into their same spot in output/

                                        So, if I have
                                        src/js/app.coffee
                                        src/js/helpers/forms.coffee
                                        src/stylesheets/styles.less

                                        This gets compiled into
                                        public/js/app.js
                                        public/js/helpers/forms.js
                                        public/stylesheets/styles.less

                                        Isn't this how most sane people structure their code? Doing this now is a huge pain, since I have to set output directories for every sub-directory I have

                                        • 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...
