I want to share a game that is WIP to a friend that does not have Pico8 emulator.
I'd love to upload them here and be able to give a non-indexed link to a friend, so he can play with a browser, but I only see the option to upload and play the game from website if it's posted publicly on the forum.

Dropbox and Drive dropped support to serve html.

What's a best and easiest way to sahre a game to a friend so that he only has to click a link and play from browser, while not being totally public?

You'll just need to rename the html file to "index.html" and drop those into a zip file. Then when you upload it, choose the thing that says that that file will be used as the webpage/game.

I don't know if you're being misunderstood or not. But if you're asking if pico-8 CAN produce a stand-alone html file you can upload yourself somewhere else. Yes, it can. Search for the EXPORT command in the manual.

Hu... you can even produce standalone exe since 0.11.

Beaker Browser might be your friend! :D

Yeah like Cabledragon and freds72 say you can export to a .HTML file or a .exe file then just send that to your friend to run. Pretty sure it's just like export mygame.html for html or export mygame.exe for the exe in Pico 8 and they appear next to your currently loaded cart but check for the export command in the manual to make sure.

Another thing you can use is put your code on GitHub and push your web page to a branch called gh-pages. It should automatically create a site for you (which you can access from the settings tab on your repository). Hint: I would call the page index.html so it gets served automatically when you click the link and you don't have to type it into the URL manually.
