LiveReload has problems with SSL (https)

LiveReload works by injecting livereload.js script into your web pages. The script has a URL like http://localhost:35729/livereload.js; on https pages that triggers an “insecure content warning” or a similar message from your browser.

Workaround: You should be able to configure your browser to suppress the warnings. Google for your browser name and “mixed mode warnings” (or the exact error message).

Status: I'm planning to look into it some time soon, but for now, please consider this a limitation.

(The main problem is that livereload.js can be accessed via multiple domain names, and even when it's on localhost, there's no way to obtain a trusted SSL certificate for localhost. I do have a few options in mind, though.)
