vhosts-conf

Update your vhosts and hosts files faster so you can spin up a dev environment like http://mydevsandbox.

Assumes you're using system apache with paths for your virtual hosts configuration and hosts configuration at

'/private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-vhosts.conf' and '/private/etc/hosts', respectively.

This package should be installed with the -g option (npm install -g) since it needs to hang out in your $PATH. Also, since it's modifying files in your root and then restarting your apache when it's done, it's probably (read: definitely) going to need to be run as root/sudo.

Usage:

  • cd to directory you want to setup a virtual host for.
  • Run sudo vhosts.
  • Open browser and type http://hostname where "hostname" is what you specified to the prompt.
  • Profit
