Share Current Folder over the Web

Tagged with: , , , , , , ,

Want to show something on your machine to someone over the web? Don’t copy it or upload it somewhere. Just run “webshare” and the current directory and everything beneath it will be served from a new web server listening on port 8000. When your pal is finished, hit control-c.


python -c "import SimpleHTTPServer;SimpleHTTPServer.test()"

For a slightly more advanced version of this server, see this article(Warning: German Article – but code is self explaining)
