MockupUse data stubs in interactive sites

Create interactive web interfaces with .json or .xml files. No more Apache/IIS/NGINX needed for CORS!

Turn your desktop into a public web server by sharing a link. Let collaborators/reviewers "touch and feel" the site.

ProtectControlled access, secured with SSH

Control access to your work by turning on/off sharing at any time. Public sharing is tunneled through SSH (i.e. HTTPS).
