Fixing Browsersync Not Reloading

I wanted to jot this down real quick while I work on the next version of this site. I’m using Gulp and Browsersync and for the life of me I couldn’t get the reload to actually take place. Turns out I didn’t specify properly what files Browsersync needs to trigger when changed. Here’s the gulp.task() that worked for me:

gulp.task('browsersync', function (callback) {  
  browserSync.init({
    proxy: 'localhost:2368',
    files: ['app/**/*.hbs', 'app/assets/scss/**/*.scss']
    
  });

  callback();
});

Note the files: array added to the browserSync.init() function. That’s the ticket, right there. Once I did that, it was magic sauce all over again.
