Login from local website

Is it possible to login from a local website (e.g. file:///path/to/index.html)?

I’ve tried it via the popup (solidAuth.popupLogin({ popupUri: 'https://solid.community/common/popup.html' })), yet this doesn’t work if tested with a file:/// path (localhost and on server do). The errors I get in the console are:
Could not deserialize data: undefined popup.html:24:121155
DOMException: “An invalid or illegal string was specified” popup.html:24:121201

Is this disabled due to a security concern, or just not implemented/a bug?
