# Need to expose locally running server to internet?

Use a tunnel like ngrok. For example, if running a server on localhost:8080

ngrok http 8080

See also for alternatives

# http-server

This has an option to enable CORS.

http-server -p 3000 --cors

# SimpleHTTPServer

This depends on having python installed. It truly is simple and doesn’t have an option for CORS for example

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 
# or depending on your python version
python3 -m http.server

# emacs-web-server

This uses httpd (apache) under the hood

(httpd-serve-directory) from the current buffer to serve its directory on port 8080
