What’s New in Local Beta 5.7.0

Instant Reload

  • With Local Pro, you can now view your CSS changes without needing to constantly hit ‘refresh’! Instant Reload will be enabled by default when you create a site, and it can be toggled on/off on a per site basis from the Pro tab. This will support both Site Domain and Local Host Routing modes.


  • Local now removes default plugins after installing WordPress when creating a new site, importing from .zip, and pulling from host.

Bug Fixes

  • When importing sites with custom environments Local will honor the custom environment configuration.
