Installing connect-helper

The connect helper adds “Mount over WebDav”, “Open in Sublime” and “Open in Finder” options to OSX.

Using WebDav, you can connect to a remote WebHare server (Mac’s Finder adds a new volume). This volume contains Publisher contents, modules and custom folders exposed from WebHare itself (application “Modules and configuration” => Menu => WebDav Data Folders).

This can for example be helpful if you want to debug something on external servers.

To make connections to servers, first install the connect-helper:

  1. npm i -g webhare-connect-helper
  2. webhare-connect-helper --install
  3. sudo webhare-connect-helper --install-sudo

Then, visit http://127.0.0.1:7521/ (the “Welcome to connect-helper” message should be visible). In the “Connect a server”, enter the URL of a WebHare server (for example https://cms.webhare.com/) and connect to it by using the “Connect” bookmarklet.
