Homestead Ngrok

Written by Rich Banks on 6th Jul, 2017


Just a very quick post to show you how to set up ngrok with Homestead.

ngrok creates a free secure public URL to a local web server on your machine. This allows you to easily test webhooks etc with ease.

You can download ngrok here Once downloaded unzip the file and open the terminal.

In the terminal navigate to the location of the unzipped ngrok e.g

cd Documents

Now run

./ngrok http

You will then be given public URL you can use to test your application.
