Hi everyone, this is srv, a minimalist http server and file browser. I felt like lobsters readers would be interested in this kind of software.
I made it as a much lighter and faster alternative to
python -m http.server. Benchmarks can be found here.
If you look at the source code, I went to some pretty great lengths to really make things as fast and simple as possible. Golang made it really easy to write something like this, I like the language a lot.
Please open issues if you’d like to request features or report bugs. Though I probably won’t accept most features (depends on how much complexity they’d introduce), I’d be interested in hearing people’s use cases.
