    the changes of my files are not recognized by the Felgo Live Server/Client anymore.

    I updated to the latest version of Qt Creator 4.5.0, Felgo 2.15.0 and I am working on macOS Sierra 10.12.6. Everything worked as expected until I followed the tutorial for publishing. I tried to change back to the previous file settings for stage “test”. Also the changes in main.cpp and .pro file.

    I can start the app in the Felgo Live client and it runs without errors, except that lokal file changes are not recognized.

    Then I tried to create a blank new project with the project wizard. With that the local file changes are recognized in Felgo Live. I compared all files but there are no differences except that I load the plugins for admob and onesignal. Also there is no difference if I comment out the plugins.

    Is there a Felgo Live Server Cache or something like that?

    Hi Arne,

    the Live Client stores the project files locally in its cache, however not in a way that would prevent changes from being ignored. Does the client reload after a change but displays the old source code, or does it not react to file changes at all?




    Hi Alex,

    the client does not react to file changes at all!

    I have to restart the client to see the changes.



    Hi all,
    Sorry for off-topic.
    I experienced similar behavior just didn’t have time yet to analyze it better.
    Have already opened issue on forum.
    For me the problem started after git branch switch.
    Won’t span here anymore, just wanted to confirm that it’s not an isolated issue.



    If that helps, I am using a git repository too.

    I can not confirm that it is the same problem as of Marcin.

    I created a new project, copied only the qml and asset folder over to the new project, without git integration and added only “QT += webengine” to the .pro file.

    The active kit is “Felgo Desktop (Qt 5.10.0 clang)”. It compiles and runs without errors in the live server debug console.

    But it still does not recognizes the qml file changes in Felgo live. I have to restart the Felgo live server to get the changes recognized.




    A second ago I deleted a file by QtCreator, a dialog pops up if I want to push this change to git as well. If I click yes, QtC commits AND the running Felgo Live instance reloads! .. So I would say, the problem with all of this relies on something with git. 😉

    Hi Arne,

    yeah we also suspected this in the thread with Marcin. We plan to change the way the file watcher picks up changes, to also be able to detect the way git changes the files.

    Thank you a lot for the reports.
