Using ngrok with Flask
This article assumes you have Python, PIP, and Flask already installed.
To share a local Flask development server with someone else, simply run:
ngrok http 5000.
If you're looking to natively embed the ngrok agent into your Flask development flow, you can leverage the pyngrok project so that a tunnel is created each time you type
Note: For users on the latest MacOS, there is an issue where the default port of 5000 is used by Apple AirPlay Receiver. You can use a different port for your Flask app or see this Stack Overflow post for disabling the AirPlay Receiver service.
