Simple Local Server Tip

/ Edit this post

I generally use https://www.npmjs.com/package/http-server to run my local web server. http-server works really great, however lately I've been finding myself using SimpleHTTPServer because it's already installed on my Mac and it's, well... simple (obviously, given the name).

Try it:

Open terminal.app and run
cd ~/Sites/some-project (or wherever your static project files exist)

and now fire it up:
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000 (or choose another port number)

then simply visit http://localhost:8000 :)

Happy coding!
