How to get ngrok working with webpack-dev-server

Rails • Asked by Daniel Weaver

I run my local dev site on ngrok and the webpack-dev-server spits out errors to the console on a regular basis:

GET https://localhost:3035/sockjs-node/info?t=1566173800826 net::ERR_CERT_AUTHORITY_INVALID @ sockjs.js:1795

[WDS] Disconnected!

Any ideas what I need to change to stop these errors appearing? Nothing I've tried so far has worked. Or do I need to make choice between using webpacker and ngrok?

Probably because you're using SSL to access your site over ngrok and your dev server is not. Try using http with ngrok.

Change webpacker.yml config
