In the interest of allowing you to run `nginx` without `sudo`, the default
port is set to localhost:8080.
If you want to host pages on your local machine to the public, you should
change that to localhost:80, and run `sudo nginx`. You'll need to turn off
any other web servers running port 80, of course.
You can start nginx automatically on login running as your user with:
mkdir -p ~/Library/LaunchAgents
cp #{plist_path} ~/Library/LaunchAgents/
launchctl load -w ~/Library/LaunchAgents/#{plist_path.basename}
Though note that if running as your user, the launch agent will fail if you
try to use a port below 1024 (such as http's default of 80.)
