NAME

Mojolicious::Plugin::AutoReload - Automatically reload open browser windows when your application changes

VERSION

version 0.004

SYNOPSIS

    use Mojolicious::Lite;
    plugin AutoReload => {};
    get '/' => 'index';
    app->start;
    __DATA__
    @@ index.html.ep
    Hello world!

DESCRIPTION

This plugin automatically reloades the page when the Mojolicious webapp restarts. This is especially useful when using the Morbo development server, which automatically restarts the webapp when it detects changes. Combined, morbo and Mojolicious::Plugin::AutoReload will automatically display your new content whenever you change your webapp in your editor!

This works by opening a WebSocket connection to a specific Mojolicious route. When the server restarts, the WebSocket is disconnected, which triggers a reload of the page.

The AutoReload plugin will automatically add a <script> tag to your HTML pages while running in development mode. If you need to control where this script tag is written, use the "auto_reload" helper.

To disable the plugin for a single page, set the plugin.auto_reload.disable stash value to a true value:

    get '/' => sub {
        my ( $c ) = @_;
        # Don't auto-reload the home page
        $c->stash( 'plugin.auto_reload.disable' => 1 );
        ...
    };

HELPERS

auto_reload

The auto_reload template helper inserts the JavaScript to automatically reload the page. This helper only works when the application mode is development, so you can leave this in all the time and have it only appear during local development.

This is only needed if you want to control where the <script> for automatically-reloading is rendered.

ROUTES

/auto_reload

This plugin adds a /auto_reload WebSocket route to your application.
