Hi, I am new to Figwheel. Is there a way to hot reload HTML files?


HTML is generally updated by injecting new code into your page via hot reloading, and then having your code update the relevant parts of the page, normally a div including the entirety of the page content.


There is no such thing as hot reloading an entire HTML document. That would just be plain old reloading.


Sound like you a looking for a tool to trigger a js/document.reload on file changes. I'm sure there are plenty of those, but that's not what figwheel is for.


That clarifies. But since Figwheel promises to reload on CSS change, I thought HTML is possible too.


It hot loads CSS into the existing document. The way browsers work, reloading the entire HTML document is best done with an actual reload.
