A simple HTTP server for static files.

HyperFS is a very simple http server that simply serves the files in the directory it is run from. It is primarily intended as a development tool similar to using python -m SimpleHTTPServer. But it is a single lightweight executable written in rust.

To be honest, part of the motivation was to just so I could try out rust.


To use simple cd into the directory with the files you want to server and run

$ hyperfs >port<

where >port< is the port you want to listen on. If not supplied it will listen on port 3000.


You can either download the binary from the latest release (currently only 64-bit linux version is available). Or you can build from source using

$ cargo build --release

and the resulting binary will be at 'target/release/hyperfs'.
