App removed from site

We're sorry, "CodeWatcher" has been removed from the App Store.

Please return to the front page and use the search box above to find another app.



       Mac OS

Do away with the "save ➔ switch to browser ➔ refresh" cyle.

CodeWatcher is a simple developer WebBrowser that automatically reloads its contents whenever a file in the base directory changes. It is the perfect tool if you are building Websites. Just give it a local html file to display and it will scan the folder for changes and reload appropriately.

CodeWatcher realizes whenever you save or rename or delete a file in your project directory, be it CSS, HTML, JPG, PNG, CFG, and automatically reloads your html so you can see the results immediately – without the cumbersome switch-and-reload moniker.

- Fullscreen Browsing
- Browser window can be always on top
- Define exception folders that shouldn't trigger a reload
- Set an URL to reload instead of the local path (i.e. localhost:8080)
- Create projects for all your development sites
- Build-In FireBug Lite (Online version)
- History

What's new

- Added a loading bar to indicate when the app is loading a new site (for slow connections).
- Fixed a bug that caused the default font to be in a different size than that of Safari.
- Fixed the bug that would cause the app to not work if the sites to be watched contained spaces or non-ascii characters.
- Fixed a typo in the menu
