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.

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.

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 :)

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