Auto-refresh a webpage with html

I'm currently working on an app that has a dashboard-style page that we needs to be automatically refreshed. After digging around, I realised that the code to do this was ridiculously trivial:


Frederic in the comments mentioned a way nicer way of doing this, without needing Javascript. Simple add a refresh meta tag in the header of your html.


(This example refreshes after 10 seconds.)

The browser automatically knows how to handle it, and you don't need any messy javascript!
