More About Django Auto Refresh

Django development server has the neat capability of reloading itself whenever the project's python source files are saved, ensuring that the latest version of the project is served at all times. However, to see the changes in the browser, you need manually refresh the relevant page or resort to incorporating a Javascript such as live.js in our source which will keep sending HEAD requests to the server to see if the page has changed and if it has reload the page.

Django-autorefresh is a solution to address this.

To use, install this plugin and add the Django app autorefresh to your INSTALLED_APPS. Django app is available at
