Anvil for Mac

Mon, 08 Oct 2012 Ā«permalinkĀ»

When I saw the description of the app, as blockquoted and linked to by Jim Dalrymple, I said to myself, “Oh look, somebody is ripping off my favorite tool Pow and sticking a GUI on it!”

Anvil takes your site folder, gives it a .dev URL and makes it run for you. Works for any static HTML sites and Rack apps.

Turns out, Anvil is just a front-end for pow. And if you’ve been running pow on your system for a while, it just hooks in to your existing projects seamlessly.

10/10, would download again.
