Anyone able to get Live Server extension to auto-reload in Codespaces?

I can forward the port that it sets up and I am able to access it. However, when I make a change in my source file, usually Live Server automatically refreshes the page. But it doesn’t seem like that works in Codespaces.

I also tried using the Browser Preview extension to try to have it open as a panel directly in the editor, but that relies on access to Chrome executable, which obviously won’t work unless I install chrome inside the dev container.

Hey! Are you using the Live Server browser extension? In general, live reloading solutions work great in Codespaces, as long as they’re running inside of the Codespace itself. However, at first glance, it seems like the Live Server extension might be relying on a browser extension to enable live reload? And if that’s true, there may be an interop issue that we need to investigate. Let me reach out to the author of that extension and see if we can figure out what might be going on. Stay tuned!

Yeah, I’m using the extension. Thanks and let me know if there’s anything you need on my end to help diagnose the issue.

We reached out to the extension author to collaborate on getting it unblocked in a Codespace, and so we’re still working through the best solution here.

@7568632342 Are you running into trouble with using Live Server in a Codespace?

Yes live server extension is not working @lostintangent

The extension seems to be hard coding “localhost” which will cause problems in web (since obviously that is your machine, not codespaces). However, if you use VS Code to connect to your codespace, it should work as expected.

sorry sir but it’s not working on my machine please help
