You can get Eclipse to auto refresh if you modify files externally. Check preferences.

I always have to do a 'Refresh' when changing the HTML. Its quite painful..

I tend to author the bulk of my html in an external editor that is
more suitable to the purpose and fast ( the eclipse validators are
painfully slow, particularly in Javascript intensive pages). Then I
tweak it in Eclipse and hit F5. A Lot.

It appears that using external html editors causes sync issues. Apparently eclipse doesn't monitor changes to the file system, except to warn you that it's out of sync. I would love the know the truth of it as I could very
well be missing something obvious.  In fact, I would bet that I am,
considering that eclispe is so cool.

I am currently using the Amateras plugin: . I have no problems with it, but I use it only for the syntax coloring
the occasional content assist.
