Sharing local files

When starting a new project, I’ll usually set up a domain on my localhost, something like “new-project-local.” However, it presents a problem when trying to show your work to clients. Either you publish to a live website, or you can use this cool tool with a funky name NGROK.

Just drop the NGROK file in your folder, and type a few commands, and bam, your localhost has a public address — something like “” that you can show the world, keep in mind your computer needs to be up and running for them to see. So if you send them a link, be sure to tell them it’s temporary.

I’ve also just started playing with code-kit; it looks promising and has some great features built-in like compiling SASS and JavaScript and external addresses for sharing.
