WP Live.php – “livereload for WordPress”

I’m very used to using grunt-contrib-watch to “livereload” my browser while I’m developing a site. Today it occured to me the same feature would be nice to have when I’m building out a page inside WordPress. In other words, whenever I update a page or post inside my WordPress admin, I wanted the browser to automatically refresh the tab I’ve got open for the client-side. A quick Google search lead me to WP Live.php.

After installing the plugin in my development environment, I got back to work building a new page. Not having to refresh my browser every time I updated the page saved me several keystrokes over the course of my build.

I made an animated GIF to show you WP Live.php in action:
