static-web-server: a command-line static web server

static-web-server is a simple, zero-configuration command-line static web server with custom error file, also serve single page application like angular 2/4/5 over http/https. It is powerful enough for production usage, but it's simple and hackable enough to be used for testing, local development, and learning.

Installing globally:

Installation via npm:

 npm install static-web-server -g

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

Usage:

 static-web-server [path] [options]

[path] defaults to ./public if the folder exists, and ./ otherwise.

Now you can visit http://localhost:8080 to view your server

Note: If you serve single page application like Angular 2/4/5. Add -n index to serve successfully.

Note: Caching is on by default. Add -c-1 as an option to disable caching.

Available Options:

-p Port to use (defaults to 8080)

-a Address to use (defaults to 0.0.0.0)

-d Show directory listings (defaults to 'True')

-n Error filename without .html (defaults to 404, redirect to 404.html)

-i Display autoIndex (defaults to 'True')

-g or --gzip When enabled (defaults to 'False') it will serve ./public/some-file.js.gz in place of ./public/some-file.js when a gzipped version of the file exists and the request accepts gzip encoding.

-e or --ext Default file extension if none supplied (defaults to 'html')

-s or --silent Suppress log messages from output

--cors Enable CORS via the Access-Control-Allow-Origin header

-o Open browser window after starting the server

-c Set cache time (in seconds) for cache-control max-age header, e.g. -c10 for 10 seconds (defaults to '3600'). To disable caching, use -c-1.

-U or --utc Use UTC time format in log messages.

-P or --proxy Proxies all requests which can't be resolved locally to the given url. e.g.: -P http://someurl.com

-S or --ssl Enable https.

-C or --cert Path to ssl cert file (default: cert.pem).

-K or --key Path to ssl key file (default: key.pem).

-r or --robots Provide a /robots.txt (whose content defaults to 'User-agent: *\nDisallow: /')

-h or --help Print this list and exit.

Development
