Hey chat. Just a quick question is real time live preview support to work in dev environments/on localhost? I've been following along with https://www.sanity.io/guides/nextjs-live-preview and finding it doesn't realtime update. Haven't set up deployment yet so haven't tested.

It should, yes. Do you have any error or something?

Thanks for the reply User. I'm not getting an error, simply that it isn't updating as expected. If I make an edit to content, I need to reload the preview in order to see the update. My assumption was that 'live' meant it was realtime. Example video attached.

Oh I actually don’t know if that‘s supposed to work within the studio. What if you open the preview in a different tab instead? Same result?

It should update the preview without refreshing that tab. What does your preview code look like? And just to double check, there are no errors or warnings in the console when this happens?

Preview code is based on the tutorial referenced (https://www.sanity.io/guides/nextjs-live-preview ). My repo can be found here .
Thanks for pointing to the error console, I don't know why I didn't think to check. I am getting a CORS error when the preview loads. I haven't had time to think or get into it but I am slightly confused that there is a CORS error given the preview loads.

You're right! It is strange that it initially loads but then throws the CORS error. Have you added
to your CORS origins in manage?

, you're a star. It was a CORS issue which I must have over looked in the guide, it's clearly there. Thanks again.

There's so much going on in that guide it's really easy to miss something! Glad it's working now!
