Running Webpack Dev Server with HTTPS on developer machine using MKCERT

1) Add local domain to /etc/hosts:

`127.0.0.1 my-project.dev`
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2) Install mkcert
3) Create certificate for this domain:

➜ mkcert my-project.dev

Created a new certificate valid for the following names 📜
 - "my-project.dev"

The certificate is at "./my-project.dev.pem" and the key at "./my-project.dev-key.pem"
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

4) Copy certificate .dev.pem and the key .dev-key.pem to project folder:

cp my-project.dev.pem path/to/my-project
cp my-project.dev-key.pem path/to/my-project
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

5) Add HTTPS options to Webpack Dev Server config:

devServer: {
    host: 'my-project.dev',
    https: {
        key: fs.readFileSync('./my-project.dev-key.pem'),
        cert: fs.readFileSync('./my-project.dev.pem'),
    }
},
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Tested with:

  • webpack 4.28.4
  • webpack-dev-server 3.2.1
  • @vue/cli-service 3.5.3
  • mkcert 1.3.0 from Homebrew
  • macOS Mojave 10.14.6 (18G84)
