mogotest – instant public tunnel to your local web server
To get the dependencies if you don't have them, type:
sudo apt-get install ruby ruby1.8-dev rubygems1.8 libopenssl-ruby
Now you can install mogotest with RubyGems:
sudo gem install mogotest
mogotest [options] -a <mogotest_api_key> <hostname_to_test> <local_port> -k, --key FILE upload a public key for authentication
mogotest is a client that will allow the Mogotest cross browser compatibility testing service to access your Web sites running on a local Web server. It obviates the need to deploy your code to a publicly accessible server or to punch a hole in your firewall.
This is how you make your local port 8080 accessible to Mogotest for testing:
$ mogotest MY_API_KEY 'www.example.com' 8080 You're good to go. Any tests you run against 'www.example.com' on Mogotest will now access your local server on port 8080.
Using mogotest is comparable to using SSH reverse/remote port forwarding on a remote host that has GatewayPorts enabled, but without all the configuration or the need of a host. The mogotest command works with a server component that is running on mogotest.com, which is provided as a free service.
If have never run mogotest before, you'll need to upload a public key to authenticate. You do this once:
$ mogotest -k ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub MY_API_KEY 'www.example.com' 8080
After that, you shouldn't have to use -k again.
mogotest can be started before or after the local web server. It will route all tests against the supplied test_host to your local Web server for as long as the command is running. The tunnel is closed if the command exits.
The mogotest tool is a fork of the open source localtunnel project. The following people have contributed to that project, but are not otherwise affiliated with, nor necessarily endorse, Mogotest.
