Livereload on my devices is by far one of my favorite features of Ionic. I got it working perfectly in version 1, no problem, even though it’s supposed to be experimental. Version 2 has been a different story. It may not work for iOS either but I had other problems with that that I still have to look into.
At first I was having issues that said it couldn’t connect to my IP. I don’t have a firewall and am trying this on a fresh, new blank app so no extra plugins either. I’m able to fire up the app without livereload, no problem. After researching, I tried 2 things I found in other threads on the forums.
"run:after": "watch" to my package.json. That did nothing, but I think the scripts have changed since that post in November.
Then I added
<preference name="loadUrlTimeoutValue" value="700000" /> to my config.xml. That stopped the error from occurring but the page wouldn’t load. I opened it up with the Remote Device Inspector in Chrome and it was just hanging. I hit refresh and the page did load, but very very slowly. I made a change to the page and the refresh time was no faster. The build time is normal, but the refresh time is painfully slow.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
