Chrome autoSave is dead, long live tincr!

Chrome autosave extension was huge bump in the quality of the web-application development. It allowed editing code in the chrome developer tools and then, with use of small node.js application syncing changes back to the source files.

Tincr brings it to the next level by providing synchronisation in the opposite direction. It is capable of reloading assets that you have touched without refreshing complete browser session!

Due to my two-server configuration in which my assets (javascript & css) are loaded out of the node-static server and only RoR generated json comes from ruby, tincr required non-trivial configuration separating assets from generated contents.

For testing purposes I have made a pet project, that loads assets from localhost:4444
