Webpack-dev-server not able to watch saved files



I am currently trying to migrate my workspace to cloud9, in a webpack project in which during development I am using the watch functionality of webpack with hmr.

When editing the files via cloud9, webpack doesn’t detect any file changes, however, when editing them with vim they do show as updated.

I though that it’s the way cloud9 saves updated files to disk.

Any idea on how to fix this?
