Live reload server not working after ionic cli update

Hey all - I just updated my cli this morning but now the live reload server won’t load when I run ionic serve or ionic emulate. The iPhone simulator does still work with emulate, however.

If I go to my URL in the browser I’m seeing this:


I’m not getting any error in the console, and it says that it’s loaded everything:

Gulp startup tasks: [ ‘sass’, ‘watch’ ]
Running dev server: http://localhost:ios
Running live reload server: http://localhost:35729
Watching : [ ‘www//*’, '!www/lib//*’ ]
Ionic server commands, enter:
restart or r to restart the client app from the root
goto or g and a url to have the app navigate to the given url
consolelogs or c to enable/disable console log output
serverlogs or s to enable/disable server log output
quit or q to shutdown the server and exit

[11:01:16] Using gulpfile ~/i-apps-of/gulpfile.js
[11:01:16] Starting ‘sass’…
[11:01:16] Starting ‘watch’…
[11:01:16] Finished ‘watch’ after 12 ms
CSS changed: www/css/
[11:01:16] Finished ‘sass’ after 478 ms
CSS changed: www/css/

Any ideas?


Harumph. I restarted my mac and it magically started working. So never mind!

Thanks for the update, @RobinS - rebooting now to see if it resolves my problem too… Updated CLI and lib in hopes that it helped me be able to eliminate some bugs I’ve been wrestling with, only to have it cause a new major problem (no live reload) :stuck_out_tongue:

Edit: Guessing a path or something got updated with this release… Didn’t require a full reboot for me - I just killed all node.exe instances (Windows 7) and restarted my cmd windows and all was well in the world of Live Reload.
