Teeny Tiny Static Server is a small Rakefile for serving static files with Rack, Rack-Rewrite and Thin locally.

Usage

rake server        Start the server
rake open          Open the default port in a web browser
rake launch        Open the default port in a web browser and start the server

Configuration

The default folder used for the static files is site, the default port is 9292, the log is set to false and the assets set to true. This can easily be changed by editing the following at the top of the file:

   DIR = "site"
  PORT = 9292
   LOG = false
ASSETS = true

Requirements

Why a Rakefile?

It's small and portable.
