So, I'm working on trying to develop a site using the location API and modern browsers either require you to make settings modifications, or to run the geolocation requests through https. I was wondering if there's a way of mimicing https locally, that would avoid installing let's encrypt? I don't want to manage tons of certificates locally if not absolutely necessary.
