Anvil for Mac

The beautiful menubar app for web developers

At Riot, we're huge fans of Pow. We use it exclusively for running local web environments.

That's why we built Anvil, an elegant Mac OSX application for hosting Rack, Rails, and static sites.

Features at a glance

  • Zero-config through Pow Anvil uses because it's a highly opinionated, powerful and streamlined way to serve up local sites.
  • Wildcard DNS using With support, Anvil makes your local URL available to any device on your network. Perfect for testing!
  • Hammer for Mac integration Integration with Hammer means Anvil automatically adds your Hammer projects and gives them a url.
