How to install ConveyThis on localhost?
For developers, utilizing localhost is a critical aspect of their workflow, particularly when working on web applications or programs that rely on an internet connection. As part of the development process, developers conduct tests to verify the functionality of their applications on localhost. By establishing a loopback connection to the localhost, they can test the application on the computer and operating system they are presently using.
You can use our ConveyThis plugin on localhost too. In the plugin settings instead of URL or IP you may use “localhost” for testing plugin. Following the steps below!
Step #1 - Create a host and an account
Although we cannot add new domain as “localhost”, a virtual host will help you. Create a virtual host first and install ConveyThis.
To do that, first of all you need to create account at www.conveythis.com if you haven’t already.
Step #2 - Access domain in ConveyThis
Open settings in your account on conveythis.com and find “localhost” in domains.
Click “Settings” to configurate your settings.
Step #3 - Settings
Scroll down and follow the instructions to add ConveyThis code in your localhost website.
Remember to add your own website pages to virtual host file.
Step #4 - Check your website
To verify if Conveythis has been implemented in your localhost, access the web developer tools by opening the application menu in your browser or by using the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + I.
Using Inspector tool, you should be able to view the Conveythis code.
Step #5 - Refresh the page

Now you can start translating your website.
