Free localhost sharing over ssh


Posting mostly as a reminder to myself for the next time I forget the name of this site. It’s great for sharing something running on localhost with others, such as during web development. Unlike other similar sites, this one is:

  • free
  • does not require installing software or browser plugins

Just one command (change to relevant port number):

ssh -R 80:localhost:8080

and then share the URL. That’s it. Love it.
