    Hi I am front end developer. I work on multiple sites.

    Can anyone please suggest **how to setup environment** where I _**can work locally and it will be updated directly on the server**_.

    Means the same code should have at both the place (at server and at local machine) and while I SAVE the file it would be reflect on the server and website too.

    Can anyone please?

    Don’t do this. If we work locally and not directly on the server, there is a reason. It’s dangerous.

    @Melindrea: Could you suggest me a links and steps, how can I setup this?

    @Melindrea: I don’t want to upload code manually. I just want to develop everything online. So..

    Right now I am using WinSCP / Filezilla but both have manual functions.
    WinSCP is good that we can open file directly in DW but still I want localhost once saved it would reflect at server/website code.


    Kutec, I think the others here have given you some valuable advice; but, if you just have a simple web page (HTML, CSS, JS only), you can try out Dropbox (you start out with 2Gb of free space). When you save your file in your local dropbox folder, it automatically uploads the changes to your Dropbox account which can be loaded in your browser like a live preview.

    If you’re feeling generous, use [this link]( to sign up for Dropbox using me as a referral, so I can get an additional 500Mb :P… you can get up to 16Gb of free space (500Mb per signup).

    Another option is to check out some of the live editors available like [LiveReload]( and [XRefresh](
