Localhost detector
Item media 1 screenshot


Detects if you are accessing localhost or production and respectively shows prominent red banner only on localhost.

It checks the following in the URL and adds the red banner: 1. "localhost" 2. "" 3. "local." 4. ".local" 5. "staging." 6. ".stg" 7. "dev." 8. "test." 9. ".test" Let me know, if you want to add any other string that should match and show the red banner.

I like the idea. Unfortunately, there are sites that have dev in them that this triggers on, like `dev.azure.com` for example. This means I have the banner popup in places it shouldn't be. Without any ability to customize the matching I had to uninstall. It's a cool idea though!

Works only by reading url, so no way to know if you're on localhost when using virtual hosts.
