    I kind of remember that was possible to browse local server Web pages on iPad if is cable connected without wifi network

    Since I keep my wifi network off most of the times I would like to test my works that I develop under MAMP on iPad

    I also use codekit

    Is it possible?

    You can open de page on your Safari desktop and if your iPad is using the same iCloud account you can view the open desktop page by creating a new tab ( look at bottom where it states open on desktop )

    Also CodeKit has some internal server build in that will make this page refresh automatically everywhere.

    No you'll need WiFi ON in some way on your iPad to connect to some network to make this work. If it's your network at home, office or connect to your network from your iPhone via sharing in iOS but you'll still need WiFi to make the connection.

    What you are trying to do is mirroring I think. Show a desktop app on your iPad or an iPad app on your desktop via your Lightning cable.
