There is a fundamental flow to making a site, that remains relatively unchanged from your first site to your four hundredth.

The flow is this: Have the same file open in your editor and web browser. Write changes in the editor and click save. Go to your browser and click refresh. Marvel, ponder, and repeat.

There’s a wee amount of setup to get into this flow. It is straightforward, but comes off as convoluted in text.

So...we got gifs!

We made a setup page online with some gifs to illustrate it better. You can find that here:

When your setup is done you should have an easy to access folder for your website, an index.html file in that folder, and this index.html open in Brackets and Firefox. Once that’s done, carry on!
