node-paperserve - Quick and dirty web server from your working directory


$ npm install paperserve


paperserve [path-to-serve]

  -p, --port [PORT]  set the port to listen on, default 8000
  -q, --quiet        turn off any logging, default false
  -h, --help         display this help message

Here’s what the output looks like:

>>> paperserve: running on port 8000, serving from '/cygdrive/d/Workspace/public/node-paperserve'
>>> paperserve:   Press Ctrl-C to stop.

Source code can be found on GitHub. As for the motivation behind the project – let’s just say I prefer JavaScript to Python.
