Hot Reload not working in React 17.0.3


I have recently created a new project with create-react-app. Also, I am following Mosh’s Mastering React course and according to it, if you make any changes in your project the changes should automatically reload in your browser.

But its not working for me. I am using React 17.0.3.

Any ideas?



So the page doesn’t auto-reload, but if you manually click the refresh button in the browser, you see the changes? Are you using npm start to run the app?

Yes Rob, if I manually click the refresh button it works. Also, I am using npm start to run the app.


Just found some more on our good old StackOverflow.

The first answer gives pointers on possible reasons why it is not reloading automatically.
Some of these are platform specific.

Hope this helps.
