Really simple python webserver for prototyping

Project description

Really really simple python webserver for prototyping. Basically just wraps SimpleHTTPServer/SimpleHTTPRequestHandler. I made this for my own purposes, but you’re welcome to use it.

Defaults to running on the port specified in the PORT environment variable, or 8080 if not defined.


pip install protoserver

The only function

protoserver.serve(directory = ".")


import protoserver

protoserver.serve() # Serves from the current directory

Another example

import protoserver

protoserver.serve("static")  # Serves from ./static

Clone and run demo/ if you need to see this in action.
