Unable to view changes made to a custom widget

How do I view changes I've made to my widget?


Hi everyone, I'm currently in the very early stages of creating my own widget. I've started by building on top of the scaffolding provided by Tom Watson and the Yeoman generator. I'm following the steps provided in the ESRI Guide for Web AppDeveloper to view changes to the configuration and to view the widget inside the app - Make widgets configurable in builder—Web AppBuilder for ArcGIS (Developer Edition) | ArcGIS for Developers

Specifically, I'm using the URL http://your host/webappbuilder/?appid=stemapp & http://your host/webappviewer/.


Neither of these URL's show changes I've made to the widget. Even if they are simple changes, for example, adding a line to the widget.html displaying a test message, or changing the default icon.png. I'm very sure I'm making changes to the correct widget and within the correct directory. 


Any thoughts? Its difficult to make progress without being able to test my versions as I move forward.



Thanks everyone!
