LiQR CLI

Have you ever used your phone or tablet to access a web app running on live-server?
If so, you probably went through the tedious process of:

  • Figuring out your local IP
  • Typing it into your mobile browser
  • Realizing you made a mistake
  • Typing it into your mobile browser again
  • Finally accessing your app

LiQR (pronounced 'liquor') fixes this problem by generating a QR code in your terminal that links to your live server.
