Install a live server

npm install -g live-server

Make a directory

Touch an index.html

start the server on a port and your default browser should open at a blank page

live-server --port=8777

Open that index file in a text editor

For live reload to work, you need a minimum amount of page structure with tags, so that live-server can insert it's own code into the document, in order to reload it.

<html>
    <head>

    </head>
    <body>
        hi there! all good?
    </body>
</html>

HOW WAS I DOING CODE? HOW DOES THIS LOOK?
