This project is currently down. Please use Ngrok. It is hoped Localtunnel and Ngrok will eventually be merged._
Localtunnel lets you expose a local web server to the public Internet.
For example, running a web server on port 8000 on your laptop can be made public with::
$ localtunnel-beta 8000 Port 8000 is now accessible from http://8fde2c.v2.localtunnel.com ...
The localtunnel server is provided as a free public service. However, you can also deploy your own localtunnel server on dotCloud or your own server.
Localtunnel currently requires Python 2.6 or greater. Install with pip::
$ pip install localtunnel
Since there is one dependency with a C extension, you will need Python headers and basic build tools. If you're on OS X this just means you need to have Xcode installed.
