How to enable the live reloading?

Carbone Studio live preview

When you want to design a template, you upload your template once in the studio, then you can update either your JSON or your template in Word or LibreOffice and you will see the preview. The live reloading allows to design and edit templates from you favorite text editor and Carbone Studio will reload and render automatically the report.

Supported browsers

This feature only works on navigators based on Chromium:

Google Chrome
Brave (Action required, see tutorial bellow)

The live reload is not available on Firefox because the browser does not support the Native File System API for now.

Enable Brave live reloading

Brave disabled the File System API by default. To make the live reload work, you can enable the file system API:
Write on the search bar brave://flags
Search File System Access API
Change the value to "Enabled"
Click on the reload button

Then you can use the live reload of Carbone Studio, upload a template, then you can edit the template with your text editor, and you will see the generated report with your latest changes!
