Netlify dev doesn't reload

My site works when deployed to Netlify. Running netlify dev locally works too, but changing files doesn’t cause it to re-build. Should it? I need to kill netlify dev and manually re-build my app, then restart netlify dev.

I noticed if I modify my package.json, it says function test modified, reloading.... I don’t know why changing package.json causes it to think one of my functions was modifed, and the “reloading” doesn’t seem to actually rebuild the site.

I’d really appreciate if anyone can point me in the right direction to get this working!

hi there, is this related to this issue?

Netlify dev --live is not hot reloading when I change code

Thanks, that does seem like the same issue, I’ll check that thread for help.
