LiveReload with BrowserSync and Gulp

In my previous blog post, I have written about how to use LiveReload Chrome extension, with Guard and some Ruby gems to make a web page automatically reload in a browser, Chrome browser to be specific. Just by reading this sentence, it already sounds like a complicated task. And indeed it is. Luckily, I have found a better solution: BrowserSync.

With LiveReload, you have to install browser extension, but BrowserSync uses, so it can supports more than one browser at once. This is great for working with responsive design, where screens with different sizes are needed to be tested.

No need to install extension and support more than one browser are really big plus.

The following is a short instruction and some examples on how to use both BrowserSync and Gulp to automatically reload a web documentation page generated by Docco in any connected browser.
