Pythons Simple HTTP Server

There is a nice little feature in Python that a friend of mine showed me. You may use Python as a Web Server… and that is right out of the box. No additional programs to install or any tweaking at all 🙂

Move to the folder you want to make available for others to see.
Then type
python -m SimpleHTTPServer

If you want to use a special port you may type something like this:

python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8713

Others may browse your directory and directories below.
If you haven’t specified a port, in your browser type :

Or, if you have specified a port

Enjoy 🙂
