In things that are bad ass that I've found on the internet lately, here is a post on how to do Python's SimpleHTTPServer: ruby's “python -m simplehttpserver”
I've been using it ever since.
The meat of this is to install rack (sudo gem install rack), throw the code into a rackup file
#!/usr/bin/env rackup #\ -E deployment use Rack::ContentLength app = Rack::Directory.new Dir.pwd run app
And have fun.
Thanks, SAMSON WU.
