We distribute Expose as a PHAR archive that contains everything you need in order to use Expose. Simply download it from here and make it executable:
curl https://github.com/beyondcode/expose/raw/master/builds/expose -L --output expose chmod +x expose ./expose
You most likely want to put the
expose.phar into a directory on your
PATH, so you can simply call expose from any directory. For example:
sudo mv expose.phar /usr/local/bin/expose
After that, you are ready to go and can share your first site.
Expose is a PHP application and you can install the client for your local machine as a global composer dependency:
composer global require beyondcode/expose
Make sure that your global composer directory is inside of your
PATH environment variable.
Simply add this directory to your
PATH in your
~/.bashrc) like this:
Expose has a
Dockerfile in the root of the source that you can build and use without any extra effort.
docker build -t expose .
docker run expose <expose command>
docker run expose share http://192.168.2.100 # share a local site docker run expose serve my-domain.com # start a server
Now you're ready to go and can share your first site.
By default, Expose comes as an executable PHAR file. This allows you to use all Expose features out of the box – without any additional setup required.
If you want to modify Expose and want to add custom request/response modifiers, you need to clone the GitHub repository instead of the global composer dependency.
You can learn more about the customization of Expose in the extending Expose documentation section.
