shopify cli (theme server) - not pushing changes in real time

9 1 5

Hello, I recently updated to shopify 2.1.0 and it is not pushing "to the store in real time" using `shopify theme serve`.

I am able to update the theme using `shopify theme push`

The `theme serve --help` doc says:

Uploads the current theme as a development theme to the connected store, then prints theme editor and preview URLs to your terminal. While running, changes will push to the store in real time

When I click the the URL, it redirects to the shopify url, and as i edit the code in VSCode, nothing gets updated when I refresh.

Me neither. 

I don't see "real time update" by using theme serve command.

Were you able to find any fix with this issue? Been experiencing this as well and haven't been able to find a solution yet

Same issue for me, the shopify theme serve function has not been working (showing changes locally) for over a week now. I have to make the changes "blind" and push the theme to check on the live shopify site.
