Ultimate Webdev Time Saver

With my wonder script you have more focus on your customer projects under localhost. So you get things done like a zen master. Believe Me.

    Hosting all those sites locally must slow your laptop down!

    With my wonder script you no longer need this sites.

    I coded a bash script ( https://gist.github.com/748896 ) with the same idea and man, you really save time!

    All those poor souls integrating social networking APIs.

    @naholyr I think including a call to flush the cache may help it work with Chrome. (Not FF yet.) I'm still doing a bit of debugging on the version I built for practice that has a cache flush, but you're welcome to give it a shot.

    You can also turn it on/off.

    @afgomez I recreated a version of yours to practice my bash scripting. Thanks for putting it out there!

    @sjhcockrell neat! I will shamelessly copy the good parts tomorrow and blend them with mine :)

    Does not work if you use chrome and already visited those websites : it keeps its own DNS cache and won't care about your changes :(

    I tried to make a pomodoro script based on this idea some time ago but had to give up.

    cool trick, but isn't the concept of discipline central to the idea of being a zen master?
