Ngrok for Web Development
August 18, 2015
It’s 2015 and I just know Ngrok recently! Once you know Ngrok, it won’t be the same anymore. *ok this is too much.
What is Ngrok?
By using Ngrok, you can create a secure tunnels to localhost. It means that if you’re working on a cafe, and your colleague is working from another cafe (the art of working from anywhere), you can share your localhost to your friend using Ngrok.
How to use Ngrok
- Download Ngrok from here
- Unzip it
- Type this in the terminal where you unzipped Ngrok, fill the port with the port you want to expose to your friend e.g. 9000
./ngrok http [port]
If you got that right, you can see something like this in the terminal:
Happy Ngrok-ing! :)
