Off-site updates with Charles (and Tuomo)

Tuomo utilises a tool called Charles – saving his clients’ time and, ultimately, some money. Here’s what Tuomo does and likes about his friend Charles.

“I’ve been using Charles for a while now and it’s an invaluable tool. It’s a tool that acts as a proxy, monitor and reverse proxy, and it allows me quick access to the development side of our client’s various sites and pages.

I’ve recently been working with a number of different clients and accessing their various site environments from my own local machine. By using the tools I can re-write functions to implement tests, live code and scripts.

This is really helpful as I can take scripts and code from the client, test them, tweak them, re-test them, as well as implement them all from the comfort of my own desk. It also gives me the ability to do this as and when I see a problem. That means I don’t have to wait for the client to provide access or go on-site with the client. This saves me and the client a great deal of time and effort.

Have you used Charles? If so, what are your thoughts on it and its functions? Or, do you have support requirements where Charles could be an invaluable tool? If so, get in touch and we can help you utilise it effectively. Or, if you’d like to discuss any other such ideas or tools, please get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to have a chat with you.
