🤷🏼 How to activate the simulator on local files ?


Chrome extensions are not allowed to execute by default on local files. But if you want to activate the mobile simultor on a local file we of course need to execute a script to create the view. So to do that you have to manually activate a Chrome option.

Example of local file URL
