We've taken cues from the latest breed of powerful macOS developer tools and rebuilt VirtualHostX's UI to feel right at home on macOS Catalina.
But more than a fresh coat of paint, we've added a brand new status bar that keeps tabs on what's going on with your websites and the server, so you'll know at-a-glance that things are running smoothly.
Extra help links are sprinkled throughout the app. New status icons and tool-tips can quickly alert you to a configuration problem.
And if you're not a sys-admin in your day job, we think you'll appreciate the added links to in-depth FAQs and how-to guides that explain each feature.
We all make mistakes. Now you can take snapshots of your websites and restore to any previous version.
VHX can backup all of your website's files and databases, and you can optionally store them in Dropbox, iCloud, or Google Drive to keep them synced across your Macs.
Many of our customers use VirtualHostX to run production websites. Now they can do it securely.
VHX can install and configure a free Let's Encrypt SSL certificate for your public-facing website so your visitors see a trusted HTTPS padlock in their browser.
And if you're just testing your website locally, you can use our own SSL certificate or bring your own.
Make VirtualHostX your default web browser.
That's right. You can now make VirtualHostX your Mac's default web browser. When you click a link in another app, VHX will prompt you to choose which of the actual web browsers on your Mac you want to open the link with.
It's perfect for quickly testing your websites across multiple web browsers.
Whether across the world or sitting in the other cubicle, VirtualHostX can help you share your in-progress websites with friends and coworkers.
And when they share websites with you, they'll automatically appear in the VHX sidebar beneath yours. It's a great way to gather feedback on what you're building.
But, privacy first! Nothing is ever shared without you first opting-in.
Ok, ok. This one's totally for the nerds, power users, and systems administrators.
Now you can bend VirtualHostX to your will by automatically creating and editing websites with AppleScript. You also have full control over starting/stopping/restarting the virtual machine and performing other tasks.
Want to include VirtualHostX in your CI tests or CD pipeline? Now you can.
