Dev server with nodejs api support


I’d like to set up development server which can display in browser my electron app that uses few modules from native nodejs api such as fs module. Up until now I’ve simply developed by constantly refreshing my app in electron window but it is getting bit tedious and I’m hoping there’s better alternative. When I search for solution the most frequent result I get is to use webpack dev server. The problem is that while webpack dev server is brilliant for pure client side apps, it doesn’t seem to work with node unless I’m missing something. What are my options?
