Is there another way to execute js files automatically from notepad without having to save it all the time?

After two days of trying to figure out how to connect my html and java files on the browser, I came to find out that even after I linked the two together; I always have to save each command from notepad than refresh the page in order for me to see the change. So, Is there another way to execute js files automatically from notepad without having to save it all the time?

You could always try something like CodePen or JS Fiddle. They let you edit HTML, JS, and CSS and render it in real time. Helps a lot when developing something simple, although I wouldn't recommend it for larger or more complex applications.

Thanks!

I think livereload is one of the simpler ways to save having to refresh

Thanks!
