Launch a Development Server directly from Sublime Text!

📋 Introduction

This package integrates the Live Server Node package, giving the ability to launch a local development server to serve content directly from Sublime Text.

💡 About Live Server:

Live Server is Node.js tool that spins up a local development server in the given directory.

It features live browser reloading, which simply means that your browser will automatically refresh the page when any change is made to your HTML & CSS files.

Useful for static sites, SPAs, and general HTML/CSS fiddling.

❗Prerequisites

You need the following software installed to use Live Server.

To install Live Server globally using npm, run:

npm install -g live-server

To install Live Server globally using Yarn, run:

yarn global add live-server

🌀 Installation

Package Control

This package is available in Package Control under the name LiveServer.

As a Repository

❓ Usage

This package exposes 3 commands that can be used directly via the Command Palette, or bound to keys. These are:

Live Server: Start

  • Maps to live_server_start

Live Server: Stop

  • Maps to live_server_stop

Live Server: Open In Browser

  • Maps to live_server_open_in_browser

Status bar messages with indicator emojis are implemented into the package, displaying information in cases such as:

  • 🎉 Live Server running
  • ❌ Live Server stopped
  • ✔️ Live Server status

When the development server is running, a status message will be shown in the status bar indicating that the server is running. This is shared across all views in the opened instance.
