Browsersync is an open-source project created by Shane Osbourne

Why isn’t Browsersync connecting with my project?
99% of the time, it's because your web page doesn't have a body tag. In order for Browsersync to connect properly the body tag must be present in your website (we add a script tag just after it). Alternatively you can provide a custom rule for the snippet using snippetOptions
Which mode should I be running in?
  • If you have simple HTML, CSS & JavaScript files, you need the server option.
  • If you already have an existing server setup (such as an Express app, Mamp, Rails etc, then you need the proxy option.
  • If you intend to copy/paste the snippet into your website manually, you use the snippet mode. This is the default mode and is achieved by omitting both the server & proxy options
Where can I report an issue?
