A LiveReload server implementation

I made, a LiveReload server implementation in Crystal.

To show its usage I publish a small markdown rendering server with livereload .

On some projects where webpack is not required; and stylesheets, data, or views can be updated without rebuilding the http server this can improve the feedback loop.

Since there is no shard still that does filesystem watch across linux & darwin written in pure Crystal, for now does not watch files it self.

Iā€™m also thinking of adding an API inspired in to allow external processes to trigger file changes.
