    I have a problem, i think, with livereload and ZAT.

    If a launch Zat Theme Preview my pages are unformatted and slowly, the console show this:

    and some others.

    I have allowed the Insecure Content on Chrome and also test with zat theme preview --no-livereload but doesn't work.

    I must work with online data, on our guide, but it seems impossibile!

    There is a work around for this problem?

    Thanks a lot

    Hi Pasquale! For an issue like this, I would recommend reaching out directly to our Advocacy team so that they can get additional information needed to assist here.

    Just wanted to reach out here to see if anyone has been running into issues with the ZAT when trying to work on themes locally. For some reason it's not picking up changes to template files any more and I have to close down and rerun zat theme preview for every change. 

    One of my team also is getting intermittent issues where it's taking ages to fully spin up with web server which is doubly annoying given the above.

    Hi, I had same problems over 1 year ago. The API for local development is just bad. I created custom solution for it because I spent 2 weeks trying to make it fully work. No chance. Server breaking connection, continuous problems with uploads etc. I created own continuous deployment scripting in Gulp. It is working and I advice to do the same. Zendesk API allowed to do it all by myself.
