How to use v2: First: python setup.py develop (Alternatively you can do install instead of develop) Now run some web app locally on, say, port 8000. If you have nothing, run this in some directory: python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000 Localtunnel does some stuff with the hostname, so you want to set up two hostnames. One for localtunnel registration, one for your localtunnel. Normally it expects a wildcard, but we'll just hardcode a hostname for this example tunnel. example.localtunnel.local -> 127.0.0.1 localtunnel.local -> 127.0.0.1 You can do this in /etc/hosts or use that fancy ghost utility. Now you can start the server. It's based on a configuration file in the config directory. You can make your own, but this one is configured to run the server on port 9999 and expects the hostname localtunnel.local ginkgo config/default.conf.py Like your web app or SimpleHTTPServer, you'll want to leave this running. The client is installed as a command called "lt". You use this to make the tunnel. We have to specify the broker address, and the name of the tunnel: lt --broker 127.0.0.1:9999 --name example 8000 Leave this running. Now you should be able to browse to: http://example.localtunnel.local:9999 And you should see the same thing as you would at: http://localhost:8000 THE END
