Localtost is a compact web application which lets you see list of services running locally by just opening a URL. It scans for some really popular services on a PC or server such as an HTTP server, Dropbox, Transmission, Keybase, etc. All you have to do is just open a URL and see the list of service along with the port. This is a good application that you can implement in your own applications to get the list of services from user’s computer. However, I will not recommend you to use it to exploit someone’s PC. One of the best part about this is that it is open source and you are free to do anything that you want.

If you want to scan some really popular services running on localhost without any sophisticated tool then you can try the web app that I have mentioned here. All you have to do is just open the URL and see list of services. Or, you can host it on your own server then use it to get list of services. Currently, it supports some really popular and widely used services. But you can easily add your own or if you don’t know programming then you can request them on its GitHub page.

Or, you can create a new issue on its GitHub repository and then you request for a service. Some more services will be added by the developer itself. Till then, you can enjoy this simple and powerful application on the server it is currently hosted. Or, you can self host it as well on any server that you have.

In the screenshot above, you can see this in action on my own PC. It detected the services running on my PC on various ports pretty quickly. You can also so the same and all you have to do is just open a simple URL in your browser.

The Bottom Line:

Localtost is an amazing web application then you can use to easily see all services running on localhost. You can use it in various ways to do anything that you like. What I liked best is that it is open source. So, in case the current host goes down, you can self host it on your own server.
