URLazy

Tool for web developers

Eases the pain of entering long URLs into a bunch of test devices by finding collections of URLs on the local network and allowing you to open them with a single tap. You can serve links from a GUI app on your workstation or from a Ruby script on a local development server (source code in same repo).

URLazy finds this list with no configuration required, provided you are connected to your network via Wi-Fi. This makes it super easy to test your projects on real devices without manually setting up bookmarks or entering URLs.

This is a better alternative to bookmarks or centralized index pages because new devices require no set-up and you don't have to edit URLs every time your environment changes - or if you take your work home. URLazy uses multicast UDP to find collections of links. If your network administrator enables it, this can even work across a corporate WAN.

    Permissions
    • have full network access
      Allows the app to create network sockets and use custom network protocols. The browser and other applications provide means to send data to the internet, so this permission is not required to send data to the internet.
    • allow Wi-Fi Multicast reception
      Allows the app to receive packets sent to all devices on a Wi-Fi network using multicast addresses, not just your phone. It uses more power than the non-multicast mode.
    • view network connections
      Allows the app to view information about network connections such as which networks exist and are connected.
    • view Wi-Fi connections
      Allows the app to view information about Wi-Fi networking, such as whether Wi-Fi is enabled and name of connected Wi-Fi devices.
