ngrok – Public URLs for exposing your local web server

To make a local server available to the outside world you could use a service like xip.io. Only problem is that xip.io doesn’t play that nice with firewalls and stuff like that.

Recently I used ngrok to solve just that. When started the app creates a tunnel to the ngrok servers, and makes your local server accessible via a (temporary) public URL.

Spend more time programming. One command for an instant, secure URL to your localhost server through any NAT or firewall.

Installation possible via Homebrew Cask:

brew cask install ngrok
