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
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?
