LocoHost - Chrome extension for Rails, Elm, Ember, and other devs
I released a Chrome extension called LocoHost that allows you to set up a series of quick links to localhost on various ports. It scratches an itch I had related to the frustration of typing in localhost:3000 for Rails, then localhost:4200 for Ember, and then moving to localhost:4000 for Phoenix and so on. Also an excuse to work develop a Chrome extension 😉.
After installing the extension, the first and only step required is visiting the options to set up the various items you need.
Here’s a screenshot of options page, where you can manage items:
Find it at the Chrome Web Store under Locohost
The source is available and open-sourced with an MIT license at my Github repo locohost
Possible future features:
- Ability to sort either manually or by choice of port/name
- Ability to add framework logos
- Ability to choose between opening in new tab or current
And yes I am using it to write this…
