    OK, first... this is completely awesome!.

    Second... How does this fit into my gulp webpack SCSS babel jekyll asset pipeline?

      I'm also curious about this, and naturally others too. If I write Vue, how can I see my work put together through Solis?

        Compile your site down into server side code and get Solis to listen to the localhost or an individual HTML file for changes. Push your changes to the same location and Solis will refresh.

      I can’t give you a response about Jekyll, but for Hugo, you could just run the Hugo local dev server and point Solis at that. It basically means you just need to fire up Hugo server and open Solis to see everything.

      As for SCSS, I’m just using CodeKit (which is awesome) to rebuild on changes.

      Disclaimer: I am very much a part time web front end dev, but I think Solis would work for me.

    This is a feature should be an embedded feature in browsers. Nice one.

    I think browser sync should be embedded too.

      I agree, but I think it would also be good if Norm got a chance to make a little bit of cash from the idea before it’s used in other places.

    This looks really interesting.

    Is this compatible with Local by Flywheel? For Wordpress development.

    Curious if this supports SCSS/LESS previews on Ember running on localhost?

    This looks incredible, and yet another app making me sad that I'm still on a PC.

    Isn't this what Coda does? From Panic software? Keep in mind I'm a very casual developer, I might just be ignorant of the technicalities. Is it special because of the multiple previews at once?

    What browser does this most closely map to? Chrome? Safari? I assume this is using Webkit to render the viewports.

    Very cool!

    I use Espresso, a code editor with this feature built in (works really well), but this looks like a great option if you love a different editor like Sublime.

    Live editing and previewing is worlds better than making changes in the web inspector and trying to copy over to your CSS/SCSS files.
