linemanjs add live reload

Handsontable JavaScript Spreadsheet Most popular component for web apps

The latest version of linemanjs has it turned off, so how can we add live reload back into the workflow?

page reloads automatically when:

* css changes
* js changes
* html changes

Watch task already loaded and configured. It currently (04 march 2013) uses grunt-watch-nospawn.

“The Grunt 0.4 release was a major release. One of its plugins, grunt-contrib-watch, was updated for that release but incidentally changed significantly. This module is a drop-in replacement for grunt-contrib-watch designed to retain the same behavior as the branch that was compatible with Grunt 0.3.”

However on inspection of grunt-contrib-watch it has a no spawn option.

After some investigation, it’s been turned off for a reason according to lineman devs it was actually slowing down the workflow so it was removed.
