http-server: a command-line http server

http-server is a simple, zero-configuration command-line http server. It is powerful enough for production usage, but it's simple and hackable enough to be used for testing, local development, and learning.

Installation:

Installation is via npm. If you don't have npm yet:

 curl http://npmjs.org/install.sh | sh

Once you have npm:

 npm install http-server -g

This will install http-server globally so that it may be run from the command line.

If you cannot install npm, you can always clone the source directly:

 git clone git://github.com/nodejitsu/http-server.git
 cd http-server
 node bin/http-server

Usage:

 http-server [path] [options]

The entire /mypath tree will now be available at http://localhost:8080/.

Available Options:

-p Port to listen for connections on (defaults to 8080)

-a Address to bind to (defaults to 'localhost')

-i Display AutoIndex (defaults to 'True')

-s or --silent In silent mode, log messages aren't logged to the console.

-h or --help Displays a list of commands and exits.
