A very simple and unsafe :-), self-signed, CORS https node.js dev stub service in TypeScript

const https = require("https"); const fs = require("fs"); // To create the key.pem and cert.pem files for dev, use opensll: // openssl req -newkey rsa:2048 -new -nodes -x509 -days 3650 -keyout key.pem -out cert.pem // // Cert and key are created for hosheader "stub.service.am.dev". // Make sure the hosts file on windows contains: // stub.service.am.dev const options = { key: fs.readFileSync("./key.pem"), cert: fs.readFileSync("./cert.pem") }; const port = 4433; https.createServer(options, function (req: any, res: any) { // Allow calls from all domains, for all methods ans request headers. res.setHeader("Access-Control-Allow-Origin", "*"); res.setHeader("Access-Control-Allow-Credentials", true); res.setHeader("Access-Control-Allow-Methods", "*"); res.setHeader("Access-Control-Allow-Headers", "*"); res.end(`Request received on server. Path Hit: ${res.url}`); }).listen(port, function() { console.log(`Stub service listing on ${port}`); });

Just enter https://stub.service.am.dev:4433 and it should respond with:

Request received on server. Path Hit: undefined

Changed blog to HTTPS

Today I changed my blog to work with HTTPS. With the emerging HTTP/2 standard and google promoting HTTPS sites, I decided to convert my site from HTTP to HTTPS.

After installing the certificates I used the WordPress plugin: Really Simple SSL

to convert all my insecure http content. After activating this plugin, this site is finally running on HTTPS:




Even publishing with Open Live Writer still works!
