Serve files from shell via a small HTTP server

Project description

Servefile

Serve files from shell via a small HTTP server. The server redirects all HTTP requests to the file, so only IP and port must be given to another user to access the file. Its main purpose is to quickly send a file to users in your local network, independent of their current setup (OS/software). Besides that it also supports uploads, SSL, HTTP basic auth and directory listings.

Features:

  • serve single file
  • serve a directory with directory index
  • file upload via webinterface
  • HTTPS with on the fly generated self signed SSL certificates
  • HTTP basic authentication
  • serving files/directories as on request generated tar files

Install

Via pip

pip install servefile

After installation either execute servefile --help or python -m servefile --help

Standalone: If you don't have pip available just copy servefile/servefile.py onto the target machine, make it executable and you are ready to go.

$ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sebageek/servefile/master/servefile/servefile.py -O servefile
$ chmod +x servefile
$ ./servefile --help
