Juno hot reload during development

I am trying to hack on Juno by working through atom-julia-client. But I have to run atom -d or window:reload to see the changes. I couldn’t find anything related to hot reload in docs. Did I miss something or manual reload is the only way to update changes?

If you’re making changes to the Atom plugins, then yes, reloading the window is the only way to get the updated code. I’d recommend to keep a regular Atom session open for editing and then reload the atom -d session regularly.

There is a community package that seems to be what exactly you want: https://github.com/cakecatz/atom-hot-package-loader

FYI: It does work well with simple packages but unfortunately not with rather complex one, say with many custom UI components. Thus it mayn’t work as you expect if you hot-reload UI components.
