1 Mins read

ngrok provides a real-time web UI where you can introspect all HTTP traffic running over your tunnels. Replay any request against your tunnel with one click.

It has been introduced to making development made easy for the developer. It enhances collaboration and interaction with fellow developers, project managers, or clients.

Some tips to guide the usage.

  1. Ensure you have a ngrok account
  2. Download ngrok for your system from https://ngrok.com/
  3. Extract and double click for window users
  4. run /ngrok help

To convert your local url to public URL for everyone to access

The local URL is 127.9.2.45.6

To convert to a ngrok url that could be accessed anywhere

You run /ngrok http 127.9.2.45.6 (The code is on ngrok terminal)

The ngrok generates a forwarding url that can be accessed anywhere.

The advantage of the ngrok is a real time system where it is automatically update from your lines of code at a refresh.

Try working through it. It has a free plan that should serve your needs. But you can decide to support their other plans.
