Control Alt Build Status

This package can be used to enable Live Reload via the script tag in Magento 2. It will check if you are in production mode or not. If you are not, there will be no output.


Install using Composer:

composer require controlaltdelete/magento2-live-reload


php bin/magento module:enable ControlAltDelete_LiveReload


php bin/magento setup:upgrade


Make sure you are in default or development mode. You can check the current mode of your webshop by running:

php bin/magento deploy:mode:show

If you need to change the mode you can do this by running:

php bin/magento deploy:mode:set production

This can take some time. Make sure you are running production mode in ... production. Run developer mode only on you local/development environment.


This package has no dependencies, other than magento/framework. Which is required by Magento by default. For the development we require phpstan/phpstan and magento/marketplace-eqp for code quality.
