static-file-http-server: a simple static server

static-file-http-server is a simple, zero-configuration command-line static server written in Rust. It is powerful enough for production usage, but it's simple and requires not configuration. It can also produce a single binary file that hosts your files independently which is what we recommend for production.


Using npm:

npm install --global static-file-http-server

Using cargo:

cargo install static-file-http-server

How to use:

static-file-http-server [OPTIONS] <PATH>

-a --addr Address to bind, for example: You may need administrator permissions for binding on port 80 based on your OS.
-r --cors Controling CORS via the 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header. *
-c --cache Set cache time (in seconds) for cache-control max-age header, for eaxmple: -c10 for 10 seconds. Use -c-1 to disable caching. 3600
