Great alternative to be mentioned is localhost.run it’s actually just an ssh command forwarding your local traffic which results in not needing to install anything on your local machine.

ngrok http 3000 creates a tunnel on the port 3000 and expose it on an url. So you have to start your app on port 3000 then it is available to the url πŸŽ‰
