    I’m confused. How does the live server get the browser to reload the page. Does it inject event listeners into the served webpage? What’s the magic?

    Sudo is not super user do. It's actually substitute user do. You can use sudo to act as any user you have permission for. It's just the default is root. Su is the same. Can be anyone but root is default.

    Workflow: C++ when?


    Hello Sir,
    I urgently need to have a word with you regarding my project at college but I don't have your email id. Also I reactivated my facebook account so that I could send you a text but i am not able to send any messages to you.
    I created a YouTube group chat so that we can have the discussion more easily. 🙂 Join here:

    12:44 For example, Web Workers will only work on servers – local or a remote one. Chrome blocks Web Worker's functionality when opening the file through the computer's file system

    If you install node via nvm, it installs directly in your home folder, so no perms required, and you can update node/npm with a single command

    Hey dan, does that live server consume much RAM? 'Cause my PC doesn't even run Android Studio! Thanks for the video!

    The Coding Train is the awesome channel. I have learned a lot from here and even started my own channel being influenced to share knowledges. This channel has made difference to me. Thank you very much. I have started coding tutorial videos in Nepal and I am always looking for good suggestions and feedback. Lots of love and respect from Nepal.

    Dan, a better workflow is using Meteor ( ) 🙂

    It not only perform autoreload in the browser, offer a full stack environment, but it handles file extensions through generating legacy JS for older browsers and optimized JS for newer browsers automatically. It can even be used to create apps for Android and iOS from the exact same code base.

    The only time an infinite loop is not a bug is when you write one that says "Thank you" to this guy!

    Was about to ask what shell you're using, then checked the video description… You're one step ahead. Although I do wish there was a remotely good terminal/console emulator like Windows for anything Mac/Linux/Unix-like out there.
