How to host static files from commandline on Mac OS X using Python.
Hosting HTML files in a proper webserver on Mac OS X without having to install something like Apache HTTPD or nginx and configure. I want the simplest solution to get this up and running.
Run the following snippet and you’ll have a working HTTP server hosting your static content on port 8000.
cd /path/to/my/folder python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000
