Adobe Live Reload

Adobe Live Reload implements live reload functionality to Adobe extension development.

Features

  • Reload Adobe Extensions on file save
  • Auto open Adobe DevTools on run

Requirements

  • To use ALR you’ll need Google Chrome as Adobe DevTools only works in Chrome.

  • Because Adobe DevTools is hosted independently, ALR requires this Google Chrome extension to communicate with them. Install via the Chrome Web Store to get started.

Installation

Via npm:

$ npm i adobe-live-reload -g

Usage

  • Install the npm package and Google Chrome extensions.
  • Navigate to the folder of the extension you want to debug.
  • Ensure extension is open in the Adobe Program specified in your .debug file.
  • To start the live reload server, run $ npx adobe-live-reload.
  • Adobe Live Reload will open Adobe DevTools in Google Chrome, live reload is now active and you’re ready to debug.
  • To close, select the terminal and press “ctrl+c”.
