Vite Server not Updating Changes after Save in Vue 3 with Nuxt js

Vite is a modern JavaScript build tool that provides fast development times and a great developer experience. One of the best features of Vite is hot reload, which allows you to see changes to your code without having to manually refresh the browser.

However, there are a few things that can go wrong with hot reload, and if you're having problems, it can be difficult to know where to start. In this blog post, we'll walk you through some of the most common problems with Vite hot reload and how to fix them.

Problems with Vite Hot Reload

There are a few common problems that can occur with Vite hot reload. These include:

  • File names not matching import statements: Make sure that the file names and import statements match exactly. For example, if your file is named task.js, your import statement should be import Task from "src/js/task.js".

  • Third-party libraries not supporting hot reload: Some third-party libraries don't support hot reload, which means that you'll need to manually refresh the browser to see changes.

  • Incorrect Vite configuration: Make sure that your Vite configuration is correct. You can find more information on the Vite website.

Troubleshooting Vite Hot Reload

If you're having problems with Vite hot reload, you can try the following:

  • Restart your Vite server.

  • Clear your browser's cache.

  • Try a different browser.

If you're still having problems, you can ask for help on the Vite Discord server.

Tips for Troubleshooting Vite Hot Reload

Here are some additional tips for troubleshooting Vite hot reload:

  • Use a consistent file naming convention. This will help to avoid errors caused by mismatched file names and import statements.

  • Avoid using third-party libraries that don't support hot reload. If you must use a third-party library that doesn't support hot reload, you can try using a CDN to load the library.

  • Keep your Vite configuration up to date. The Vite team is constantly adding new features and improvements, so it's important to keep your configuration up to date.
