Set default port for Crystal Playground

Hi. To use the Crystal Playground I have to specify a port number (in this case 3000) because another piece of software I use (ipfs daemon) already uses port 8080. Is it possible to set the default port number of Crystal Playground to 3000 or will I have to type it out each time?

You will need to set -p PORT or --port PORT manually each time or create an alias in your shell.

The compiler has no global configuration so far.

I’ll likely see to changing the ipfs port or set an alias in zsh to set the port option for me. A global configuration in the long run would be nice :slight_smile:
