I'm building a static website. I'd like to write a script that watches a directory and, when a file changes, tells chrome to refresh that page. This is pretty simple with AppleScript, but I'm moving from a mac environment to a linux environment. Is there a way to refresh chrome tabs programmatically in a linux environment?

I suggest you look at this previous question. Though setting up might take longer than you hoped for (even needing node.js), it seems chromix might float your boat.
