Host-it! is an electron-vue app to manage your virtualhosts easily on Mac OS.

ATTENTION: Do not use this on a production system. It's for develop purpose only.

Screenshot of Host-it! v1.0.0


  • Manage all your virtualhosts easily
  • Add/Edit/Remove virtualhost
  • Restart Apache with a click of a button
  • Open virtualhost in default browser
  • Open virtualhost error_log (or default error_log if no specific one was added)
  • Deposit default error_log path

How to use

  • Create vhosts directory if necessary (I have mine under /usr/local/etc/httpd/extra/vhosts/)
  • Include the directory in your httpd conf: Include extra/vhosts/*.conf
  • Restart apache: You can do this in the app or via sudo apachectl -k restart
  • Then, in the application settings, set the path to the vhosts directory.

ATTENTION: Your /etc/hosts is not updated automatically. Update manually or use the great tool Dnsmasq. You can install it via Homebrew: brew install dnsmasq.

More to come

  • Edit virtualhost entry manually and add specific needs e.g. Directory Options
  • Syntax Check for Apache Config
  • Offer automatic httpd.conf setup with Include extra/vhosts/*.conf
  • Check if given document root exists (otherwhise offer to create it)

Build Setup

# install dependencies
npm install

# serve with hot reload at localhost:9080
npm run dev

# build electron application for production
npm run build

# lint all JS/Vue component files in `src/`
