Type 'qs' or 'quick_serve'. By default it will use port 5000, but if you run 'qs -p 4000' it will use 4000 (or any other you specify)
*-p PORT, –port PORT* Specify port (default: 5000)
*–dir DIRECTORY* Specify directory to act as docroot (default: current directory)
*–host HOST* Specify host (default: 0.0.0.0)
*-s URL, –snapshot URL* Specify url for snapshot
-q quit deamon (if present)
*-d, –deamon* Run as a deamon process
Snapshot mode usage
When evoked with -s trailed with an url, quick_serve will fetch the url and serve it regardless of the path you call. It's useful for testing js/css as it serves the snapshot from memory, minimizing cpu/memory usage leaving the browser with reloading js/css.
quick_serve has a Rails adapter which can be called by adding this in environment.rb:
It's aimed at giving you a boost of speed on resource hungry pages when you're working on js/css. It will store all generated pages requested with GET and having no flash on it and free the snapshot collection when:
Any object is saved or destroyed in ActiveRecord
Any file is changed in the app/ directory
Keep in mind, it will run only in development mode.
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
Fork the project.
Make your feature addition or bug fix.
Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but
bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
