Does anyone know any way that I can refresh a webpage every N minutes?

I am running Kiosk browser with fullscreen, I need to have something that can refresh the page every N minutes. The Kiosk browser I am using has no such function built in.

Does anyone know how I can achieve this?

  • Why don't you use javascript with an interval to refresh your content.

I'd personally use Tasker for something like this. The process would be quite simple:

  • New Trigger -> Time
  • Give a time window (workday 7:00 am to 5:00 pm)
  • Check "Repeat:" every xx and change to Minutes
  • New Task -> Name (something like "Open Webpage")
  • New Action -> Net -> Browse URL
  • Type in URL

That Task should cause the device to relaunch the webpage every xx minutes through the default browser, so we're assuming that's set to your Kiosk browser.

Just insert this code anywhere in your kiosk browser content to refresh your web app every one minute:

<script type="text/javascript">
    setTimeout(function () { location.reload(true); }, 60000);
</script>
