Okay, so I have my own blog, a Micropub server - Indiekit, Celestial, Redis, and Redis Commander running on my local computer.

All with one command.

I feel like a mad scientist.


Oh noes! I just realized IndieAuth does not allow URls with port numbers. Now I need to figure out how to get a .local domain running instead of localhost:xxxx :(

@celia If you don’t want the hassle of fiddling with a reverse proxy, perhaps you could add local dns entries in your hosts file?

@chris How do you do that on Ubuntu 20.04? I'm thoroughly confused because I need to reverse proxy from port 8080 to 80 as well as there's systemd! It's not as simple as it used to be - editing /etc/hosts, is it? 😅


@celia hmm, not sure if the /etc/hosts entries will recognise ports, that does sound like a job for a reverse proxy… if you’re trying to connect to a docker container, could you just map a different external port to connect to the internal service running in the container? docs.docker.com/config/contain Otherwise it might be reverse proxy time…
