Loophole aims to make web development easy to share. We launched a youtube hands-on series to help you run proxy tunnels in less than 5 minutes.
As we continue to improve Loophole and aim to migrate from the current beta version to a more stable version, we have been thrilled with the response received from users all over the world in the past couple of months.
Loophole is a reverse proxy that enables you to expose your localhost to the internet. Some developers, especially Windows users, like running graphical applications.
Developers often get caught in this problem: You have a huge file that you wish to transfer to your friend. The file is too big to be sent via email or instant messenger.
Web developers usually develop on localhost using their preferred tools and languages. They often utilize the local server to test the web apps. Have you come across a situation where you might need to showcase your work to a client or a colleague for feedback/progress? I am sure it wouldn't be worth the effort to deploy the web app after every tiny change on the site. Even worse, the time it takes to deploy these changes takes forever.
Aspire to expose your localhost to the Internet with minimal effort? Do you wish to avoid going through the tedious deployment process? Let me introduce you to Loophole.
Local development environment makes the process fast and easy to test as you change your code continuously. But in doing so, you might run into situations where you need to make it available publicly via an accessible URL while you’re still in the development phase.
