A Python wrapper for ngrok
pyngrokis a Python wrapper for
ngrokthat manages its own binary, making
ngrokavailable via a convenient Python API.
ngrok is a reverse proxy tool that opens secure tunnels from public URLs to localhost, perfect for exposing local web servers, building webhook integrations, enabling SSH access, testing chatbots, demoing from your own machine, and more, and its made even more powerful with native Python integration through
pyngrokis available on PyPI and can be installed using
pip install pyngrok
conda install -c conda-forge pyngrok
pyngrokis now available as a package to our Python projects, and
ngrokis now available from the command line.

kwargsas well, which allows us to pass additional properties that are supported by ngrok.
This package puts the default

ngrokare available on the command line.

For details on how to fully leverage
ngrokfrom the command line, see ngrok's official documentation.
For more advanced usage,
pyngrok's official documentation is available at http://pyngrok.readthedocs.io.
The last version of
pyngrokthat supports Python 2.7 is 4.1.x, so we need to pin
pyngrok>=4.1,<4.2if we still want to use
pyngrokwith this version of Python. Its legacy documentation can be found here.
