golocal.dev client :: Get Local development exposed
golocal allows you to easily share a web service from your local development machine to the internet without the need of a DNS server or messing with the firewall settings.
golocal will assign you a unique publicly accessible URL that will proxy all requests to your local webserver.
In order to install golocal you will need NodeJS to be installed locally.
Install the application globally by issuing the following command:
npm -g install glc
Start a webserver on some local port (eg http://localhost:8080) and use the command line interface to request a tunnel to your local server:
You will receive a url, for example https://abc123.golocal.dev, that you can share with anyone for as long as your local instance of golocal remains active. Any requests will be routed to your local service at the specified port.
To create a custom subdomain you will need a golocal account. You can create a new account either from the website or from the console using the following command.
You will be prompted to enter an email, password and a name. After you logged in (or after you created a new account) type the following command to create a tunnel with a custom subdomain.
glc --subdomain=test 8080
You will receive a url, for example https://test.golocal.dev, that you can share with anyone for as long as your local instance of golocal remains active. Any requests will be routed to your local service at the specified port.
Autostart the browser
Want to start the tunnel in the browser after it was created?
