Creating a web server and share URL with other annotators

What is the simplest way to create and share a web server with internal colleagues who will be annotating the data? Thanks!

Hi! There are lots of ways to do this and it kinda depends on what you need. The simplest "elegant" solution is to run Prodigy on a remote machine/server on a given port and open up that port. You can then send your annotators the URL of your remote machine. If you want this to be nicer, you can add a domain to it.

The simplest "quick and dirty" solution would be to use a service like ngrok or localtunnel to expose your localhost via a public URL. This means you can run Prodigy on your local machine and make it accessible via a private link, and as long as it's running, others can annotate on your machine.
