There are several options to make your life easier.

services.AddLiveReload(options => { ... });

  1. Url (default /live-reload): You can change this websocket url to anything you want so as not to conflict with anything you already have.
  2. Paths.Add("..."); (default current root): Add as many paths as you'd like to watch.
  3. Extensions.Add("myext"); (default cshtml, css, js, html): Add more extensions to monitor for changes.
  4. InlineUpdateExtensions.Add("jpg"); (default jpg, png, css, mp4, webm): This will try and update the element on the page without refreshing the whole page.
  5. SaveFormData (default false): Attempt save any forms on your page so that on full refresh the data is restored saving you some work.
  6. InlineUpdatesWhenPossible (default true): Attempt to update elements without refreshing the whole page such as images and css.
  7. ShowStatusOnPage (default false): Shows a little status icon in the upper right that signals whether or not the page is listening for changes.
