After reading this article you will be able to deploy your app in 1 line of command *literally* (the setup is 5 steps though). So smash ALL of ❤️ 🔖 🛳 on your left and let's dive right in !

STEP 1 - Install PHP and Composer

MAC Users:

Just go

brew install composer

Of course you need to have brew installed https://brew.sh/ - Its the best package manager of Mac OS

If you are on Windows,

use these links:

PHP build for Windows download - https://php.net

Composer Installation Instructions here - https://getcomposer.org/doc/00-intro.md

STEP 2 - Make Composer Install beyondCode/EXPOSE

composer global require beyondcode/expose

Now add this to your .zshrc or .bashrc file based on whatever terminal you are using.

export PATH="$PATH:$HOME/.composer/vendor/bin"

Then restart your terminal and type expose to see if the command is recognized or not.

STEP 3 - Go and get yourself one of these 🍺 , cuz I believe you completed the hardest part of the journey

STEP 4 - Now create an account on https://beyondco.de/ and you will be given a token so register that with your terminal

expose token [YOUR-AUTH-TOKEN]

STEP 5 - This is the 1 line you've been waiting for ٩(^‿^)۶!

Here you go (☞゚ヮ゚)☞

expose share --subdomain="subd" --auth="admin:123"

This will link your local dev server running at to a url subd.sharedwithexpose.com which anybody on the internet can access with the credentials.

username: admin
password: 123

You can customize the subdomain and auth credentials to whatever pleases you for free unlike https://ngrok.com
