mkcert: valid HTTPS certificates for localhost


I found it today when googling for some solution for my mac and it works!

The web is moving to HTTPS, preventing network attackers from observing or injecting page contents. But HTTPS needs TLS certificates, and while deployment is increasingly a solved issue thanks to the ACME protocol and Let’s Encrypt, development still mostly ends up happening over HTTP because no one can get an universally valid certificate for localhost.

This is a problem because more and more browser features are being made available only to secure origins, and testing with HTTP hides any mixed content issues that can break a production HTTPS website. Developing with HTTPS should be as easy as deploying with HTTPS.
