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 “https://random-string.ngrok.io” 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.
