devserver_lib

devserver_lib does (nearly) the minimum necessary to serve a static folder over https://localhost:8080.

DO NOT USE DEVSERVER_LIB IN PRODUCTION

devserver_lib should only be used for locally hosting files on a trusted network.

devserver_lib does not properly handle the attacks robust servers must withstand on an open network.

usage

extern crate devserver_lib;

fn main() 
{
  devserver_lib::run(&"localhost", 8080, "", /*Auto-reload:*/ true ); // Runs forever serving the current folder on http://localhost:8080
}

dependencies

rust-native-tls

Dependencies only for the reload feature: notify sha-1 base64
