Here’s something that is pretty neat. Someone introduced me to this service and I believe you all should try it out. The service I am talking about is ngrok. Not sure if any of you use it, but this service allows you to mirror your
localhost without having to push your development files to a live server. Whatever you do on your
ngrok will also mirror it. So say you opened up the
ngrok URL that the
CL gave you, once you make a modification to your
ngrok will also have that same modification once you refresh your
What this does is it allows you to share your
localhost to other people if say you want to share what is going on in your
localhost or even if you have some kind of bug that you want others to fix. Screen print is a very good idea, but most people don’t really use this method because they are too lazy to upload the files to an image service or even to
SitePoint. Sometimes, people actually don’t know how to upload photos to
SitePoint because they have never used
So I suggest using ngrok to share your ideas or even get help from people.
I haven’t tried using
ngrok and shutting off my laptop. I believe once the session for using
ngrok is cut off/ over,
ngrok will stop mirroring your
localhost. This means that in order to use
ngrok, you MUST always have your PC on. When your PC is turned off,
ngrok will stop until you re-open
Now, this doesn’t mean that you should keep your PC on forever. It just means that when you turn off your system,
ngrok will stop working. I also don’t suggest keeping your PC on if you don’t want to waste money on electricity.
ngrok is just a service for you to mirror your
localhost whenever you want. It’s not a service you would want to keep open every single minute.
