5.8.3 • Public • Published
Genserve is a server generator to help manage non-blocking servers.
You can control spawned servers via command lines or within your code.
It can be used with a CI system, in a development environment, in production, etc.

1. Installation

npm install genserve -g


No extra configuration required


In the module, servers created with sudo and the standard user do not share the same directory.

Consequentially, genserve scan and sudo genserve scan may not give the same result.

To make both users use the same data directory, you can define the property GENSERVE_DATA to a shared location.

# Find the directory used by the default user
$> genserve show location main          # => /home/<user>/.local/shared

# Assign it to root
$> sudo genserve define GENSERVE_DATA "/home/<user>/.local/shared"

** You may need to review the permissions set on the shared folder (chmod)

It is also possible to set a value to GENSERVE_DATA as an environment variable

For instance:

# Define the environment variable GENSERVE_DATA
$> export GENSERVE_DATA="/home/user/data"

2. Usage

In a Terminal

$> genserve [command] [target] [--port number] [--dir path]

In a script

For CommonJs

// CommonJs
const {startGenServer, stopGenServer, infoGenServer} = require("genserve");

await startGenServer({...});                    // Start a server
await stopGenServer({...});                     // Stop a server
const json = await infoGenServer({...});        // Get server info in a JSON formatted string


// ESM
import {startGenServer, stopGenServer, infoGenServer} from "genserve";

await startGenServer({...});
await stopGenServer({...});
const json = await infoGenServer({...})

3. Notes

  • v5 is downward compatible with v4
  • v4 is downward compatible with v3
  • v3 is not downward compatible
  • v3 up to 3.7.0 is not production ready
  • v2 is not downward compatible and production-ready
  • v1 is not production ready and uses a different engine
  • v5 offers greater stability and security
  • v4 offers mitigated stability and security (after numerous testing)
  • v3 offers poor stability and security
  • v1 and v2 should be used in development mode only
  • The module name may change
  • The latest code is only available in the npm package (MIT License) and is constantly tested for bugs and security issues
  • Bug reports can still be posted at
  • Many GenServe functionalities are still undocumented. Some updates soon.

4. Quick start

Start a server

$> genserve start

Display the server status

$> genserve status            # The server [randomname] is up

Restart the server using port 5000 and serving a different directory

$> genserve restart --port 5000 --dir myfolder

Stop the server

$> genserve stop

Stop all registered servers

$> genserve shutdown

5. Overview

Launch a server in the background and run some tests (using that server) in the same terminal
  • Step 1: Spawn a non-blocking server
$> genserve start server
  • Step 2: Run tests (from the same terminal)
$> npm test
  • Step 3: Stop the server
$> genserve stop server


6. Commands

In the descriptions below, <servername> is a placeholder.

NOTE: Server names and namespaces should be lowercase with no dot symbols


Save namespace

# Save namespace to ./out/
$> genserve backup ns1 ./out


Build a set of commands

    "build": [
        "node ./node_modules/stylus/bin/stylus -m ./stylus --out ./css",
        "node ./node_modules/sass/sass.js ./scss:./css"
// Will generate a build based on the build field content
$> genserve build config ./sophia.default.json 

If the server is already created, genserve build sophia is enough

$> genserve build sophia 


Clone a server

$> genserve clone servername <servertarget>
$> genserver clone genesis1 genesis2  


Create a server without starting it

$> genserve create <servername>


# Create a server from a configuration file
$> genserve create config <filepath>

# Create a server with property port = 3001
$> genserver create genesis1 --port 3001  

# Start server on port 3001
$> genserver start genesis1  

# Stop server
$> genserver stop genesis1


Alias of the remove command

$> genserve delete <servername>


Unpack a server archive and start a server against the deployed folder

$> genserve deploy ./target


Show a server description

$> genserve description <servername>

To set a description, you can use the set command

$> genserve set genesis --description "PNG server"


Edit session file in the O.S. default editor

To edit server settings
$> genserve edit server <servername> 


$> genserve edit server genesis             # Edit settings against the registered server
$> genserve edit settings genesis           # Same as above
$> genserve edit genesis                    # Same as above

To edit global settings, omit the server name

$> genserve edit settings                     # Edit global settings
$> genserve edit logs                         # Edit global logs


Enable a property on a server

🚫 Note: Users must stop the server before being able to change properties.

$> genserve enable <servername> propertyname 
$> genserve enable genesis cors

Activatable Options

Options default Expect Description
cors false boolean Enable CORS on selected server
ssl false boolean Enable SSL on selected server
explore true boolean Enable listing mode on selected server

NOTE: There are two ways to enable/disable one of these options

Via enable/disable commands

$> genserve <enable|disable> <servername> [options]

# example
$> genserve disable genesis explore

2- Via flags

$> genserve <commands> <servername> <--options on|off> 

# example
$> genserve start genesis --explore off

Explorer view example:



Remove namespace reference.

You must stop all servers on this namespace; otherwise, the command will fail.

$> genserve erase ns1


Execute the given script file


$> genserve exec /path/to/my-script.genserve

Content example

# Comments start with a hash.

start my-server-1



stop my-server-1

The command exec will execute every line from "my-script.genserve" except for the first line (comment).


Remove all registered servers (must be stopped and unprotected).

$> genserve flush


Display server property (Use $> genserve info command to also have the server instance).

🚫 Note: Users must stop the server before being able to change properties.

$> genserve get tom


Display server information

$> genserve info genesis


              serverName: genesis
             defaultPage: index.html
                protocol: http://
                    host: localhost
                    port: 57485
               enableapi: true
                 timeout: 12000
               namespace: default
       perMessageDeflate: false
            showRequests: no
   exitWithParentLatency: 30000
       noActivityTimeout: 0
        strictServerPort: yes
                     ssl: off
         allowSelfSigned: no
              enablecors: off
           enableexplore: on
             dynamicExts: .server.[cm]?js
                    runs: 1
                   fails: 0
          serverFullName: genesis.default
                  active: false


Display various information (port related)

$> genserve investigate port 16033


 [17:55:37]     CLIENT: (4308) ▶  Server using port 16033:
 [17:55:37]     CLIENT: (4212) ▶  [server1.genserve-e2e-terminal] is not running, but set to port 16033
 [17:55:37]     CLIENT: (4312) ✨  [server2.genserve-e2e-terminal] is currently using the port 16033


Show list(s) of created named servers.

$> genserve list [all]

The option "all" will do the listing on all declared namespaces.


Load a server configuration from a file then restart the targeted server.

# Load server configuration using a filename
# The file must be located in the current directory. Format: <servername>.<activeNamespace>.json
$> genserve load testfile         # => ./testfile.default.json


# Load server configuration from a file path
$> genserve load ./some/path/testfile.default.json

# or

$> genserve load config ./some/path/testfile.default.json


Prevent a server from being stopped. The commands stop [all], start [all], restart [all], set [all] will have no effect on this server.

$> genserve lock <servername>


$> genserve start <servername> --lock


Display log for a server. If you set the --open option, genserve will try to open the log in an editor.

$> genserve log <servername> [--open]



Create an archive containing all of the files the server uses in its configuration (staticDirs, dynamicDirs, etc.) This command is useful when you want to run a server in isolation (During a deployment for instance)

$> genserve pack


Show path to a server settings file:
$> genserve path settings <servername>


Tell whether the server API is active

$> genserve ping <servername>


To generate a GenServe project in the current working directory.

$> genserve project <projectname>
$> genserver project myproj  

The generated project will follow this structure:

📁 projectname                 
└───📁 build                      ⇽ A build directory that triggers auto-reload on changes
└───📁 dynamic                    ⇽ Directory to hold dynamic pages
│           📝 index.server.cjs   ⇽ A dynamic page example
└───📁 stats               
│                                 ⇽ The statistic plugin installed by default (in a subfolder)
└───📁 static                     ⇽ Directory for static pages
│          📝 index.html          ⇽ A static page example   
└───📁 src                        ⇽ Source directory (not used by the system)
└───📁 start
           📝 start.js**          ⇽ Every time the server starts or restarts, it will launch this script.  

** To disable loading plugins, pass an empty array to the "plugins" property in the server configuration.

** To disable the launching script (start.js), override the "dynStart" property in the server configuration.


Prevent a server from being removed from the registered server list. The commands flush, remove [all] will not affect this server.

$> genserve protect <servername>


$> genserve start <servername> --protect


Write server info into a file. The filename depends on the server name.

// Create the config file [] 
$> genserve get tom


Update server properties with the one written in the pulled one.

// Will update the tom server with the content from [] 
// You must pull the server config, edit the file, and then push it.
$> genserve push tom 


Remove a server from the registered server list.

$> genserve remove <servername>


Rename a server

$> genserve rename servername <servertarget>


Reset application default values to factory values

$> genserve reset


Restart a server

$> genserve restart <servername>


Restore namespace

# Restore namespace from a folder or a file
$> genserve restore ./out/


Save server configuration

# Save server configuration into a ./testfile.json file
$> genserve save testfile


Show a list of servers along with which ones are running.

$> genserve scan [all]

The option [all] will scan all declared namespaces.


# Scan the default namespace
$> genserve scan
# Scan a namespace called "special"
$> genserve scan special


Returns server names with given properties.

$> genserve search <props>


# Look for a server whose port equals 16042 in all namespaces
$> genserve search port:16042


 [19:04:29]     CLIENT: (4412)   Found [server1.genserve-e2e-terminal]
 [19:04:29]     CLIENT: (4412)   Found [server2.genserve-e2e-terminal]


Modify server property if not locked.

🚫 Note: If the server is running, it will be stopped and then restarted right after the modifications

$> genserve set tom --port 6000 --dir public 


Display various pieces of information

# Show all running servers
$> genserve show up
# Show all inactive servers
$> genserve show down
# Show all servers
$> genserve show servers
# Display namespace list
$> genserve show namespaces
# Show active namespace
$> genserve show active namespace
# Show running servers
$> genserve show active servers
# Show default namespace
$> genserve show default namespace
# Show default server for a directory
$> genserve show default server
# Show application data directory
$> genserve show location data
# Show namespaces location
$> genserve show location namespaces
# Show namespace location for "default" namespace 
$> genserve show location namespace default
# Show server setting location for "genesis"  
$> genserve show location server genesis
# Show the server name that will be used against the current directory
# if a command is started with no option 
$> genserve show linked server        # i.e. genesis => [genserve start] will launch the "genesis" server
# Show all servers which project root is set to the current directory
$> genserve show linked servers


Stop all non-locked servers from all namespaces.

$> genserve shutdown [now]

Use $> genserve shutdown now to perform the action immediately.


Start a server named <servername> on any available port serving the current directory.

When servername is missing, it uses "default" as a name or generates a random name depending on the configuration.

$> genserve start <servername>
# Will generate a server running against the current directory 
$> genserve start
# Will generate a server named genesis
$> genserve start genesis
# Will generate a server from a config file
$> genserve start config ./some/path/genesis.default.json

Start from a config file

You can also start the server from a configuration file after its creation.

# Create a server called genesis 
$> genserve create genesis

# Pull the configuration to the current directory =>  /current-location/genesis.default.json
# You can edit the file (genesis.default.json) to apply your settings.
$> genserve pull genesis

# Start the server from the pulled configuration file
$> genserve start --config ./genesis.default.json
Now, you can always use this file to start your server, which should also ease sharing server configurations.

By default, when a server configuration file is named ".genserverc", you won't need to specify a value for the --config option

$> genserve start --config

# Same as
$> genserve start --config .genserverc


Display a server status

$> genserve status genesis


Stop a server

$> genserve stop <servername>


Unlock a locked server.

$> genserve unlock genesis


Unpack a previously packed archive

$> genserve unpack ./target/folder

7. Namespaces

All servers are created in the "default" namespace. It is, however, possible to add more than one namespace.


To select a namespace by defining a namespace by default:
# The namespace "ns1" will be the default for all GenServe commands
$> genserve namespace ns1

To select a namespace with the --namespace option
# It will override the default namespace
$> genserve start myserver --namespace ns2

To select a namespace using the canonical form
# Examples:
$> genserve start myserver.ns2      # server = myserver / namespace = ns2    
$> genserve stop myserver.ns2
$> genserve info myserver.ns2
$> genserve remove myserver.ns2
$> genserve enable myserver.ns2 cors
$> genserve disable myserver.ns2 ssl

GENSERVE_NAMESPACE environment variable

You can also define the environment variable GENSERVE_NAMESPACE with the namespace value you want, and it will be used by all commands.

  • On Windows Powershell:
PS C:\path> $env:GENSERVE_NAMESPACE = "ns3"
PS C:\path> genserve start myserver

  • On Linux & MAC:
$> export GENSERVE_NAMESPACE = "ns3"
$> genserve start myserver

  • On Windows CMD:
$> genserve start myserver

Refer to your O.S. for more advanced options for setting up environment variables.

8. Batch Operations

The option "all" allows targeting all elements in a namespace


# Start all registered and unlocked servers.
$> genserve start all

# Restart all registered and unlocked servers
$> genserve restart all

# Stop all running and unlocked servers.
$> genserve stop all

# Remove all registered and unprotected servers.
$> genserve remove all

# Display all registered servers' statuses.
$> genserve status all

# Lock all registered servers.
$> genserve lock all

# Unlock all registered servers.
$> genserve unlock all

### etc.

9. Selected/Selecting

The options "selected" or "selecting" allow targeting elements defined by a regular expression

All the commands supporting the "all" extension also support the "selected" extension.

# GenServe will start all servers whose names start with "myserver"
$> genserve start selected "^myserver.*"


$> genserve start selecting "^myserver.*"

However, the "create" and "project" command requires the use of the option --namespace

# Invalid:
$> genserve create myserver.ns2

# Valid
$> genserve create myserver --namespace ns2

10. Options

Options modifiable via CLI

The options can be set with the set command. They can also be defined with start, restart, stop

Options default Expect Description
--blockmode false boolean Run the server without quitting (start and restart commands).
The server stops with CTRL + C
--build false boolean Execute build before starting a server
--cert "" string Path to ssl cert file
--clean false boolean Also delete the log file when a server or a
namespace is erased/deleted
--defaultPage index.html string Default page to serve
--dir . string[] Directories to serve
--dynStart "" string Run some JavaScript files before the
server starts
in the same process as the server
--force false boolean Force the execution of a command even if one or more servers run
--help false boolean Display help
--key "" string Path to ssl key file
--mode "" "production", "development" Server mode

--noActivityTimeout 0 number Stop server if no activity is detected after x milliseconds
(0 for infinity)
--openPage "" string Open the given page in a browser when the server starts
--openApp "" string[] Run passed processes or JavaScript files before the server start
--platform "default" "darwin", "linux", "win32", ... Tell GenServe what platform the host is to load its configuration
--port random integer Port to run the server on
--projectroot "" string Project root directory
--protocol http:// string Protocol used by server
--silent false boolean Whether to display messages
--ssl off on/off Enable https
--unprocessed "" string URI to a static or a dynamic page to handle missing and unprocessable requests
--version false boolean Display version
--remoteapi false boolean Enable remote server API
--apiport random integer Port to control server


Pass to a server ssl certificate

$> genserve --cert path


Pass to a server private key

$> genserve --key path


This option allows invoking processes before the server starts

$> genserve start [--openApp <myBinary>] [--openApp <myBinary>] ...


# Open http://localhost:12000 in Chrome (Canary) with the Chrome flag --no-sandbox enabled 
$> genserve start --openApp "'C:/Users/<me>/AppData/Local/Google/Chrome SxS/Application/chrome.exe' 'http://localhost:12000' --ignore-certificate-errors""


This option allows deleting all created log files for a server or namespace when destroyed

# Delete server and logs
$> genserve remove genesis4 --clean

# Delete all servers in mynamespace + logs
$> genserve erase mynamespace --clean


This option allows loading some configurations depending on the platform they are running on. It is helpful to make differences between paths, for instance (Win32, Linux, Mac).

    "staticDirs": ["/home/user/mydir"],
    "platforms": {
        "linux": {
            "staticDirs": ["/home/user/mydir1", "/home/user/mydir2"]
        "darwin": {
            "staticDirs": ["/home/user/mydir1", "/home/user/mydir2"]
        "win32": {
            "staticDirs": ["C:/projs/mydir1", "C:/projs/mydir2"]
        "custom": {
            "staticDirs": ["./anywhere"]
        "default": {
            "staticDirs": ["/home/user/mydir"]

In this example, the "linux" section will override the default configuration.

$> genserve start server1 --platform linux  

If platform is not specified, the system detect which platform it is running on and load the appropriate section if defined.


This option allows loading some custom configurations depending on the value set to --section

    "sections": {
        "localth1": {
            "port": 10230,
            "staticDirs": ["/home/user/mydir1", "/home/user/mydir2"]
        "localth2": {
            "port": 10232,
            "staticDirs": ["/home/user/mydir3", "/home/user/mydir3"]

In this example, the "localth1" section will override the default configuration.

$> genserve start server1 --section localth1  


  • Option 1

Enable SSL via command line:

$> genserve --ssl --cert /path/to/cert --key /path/to/key

Enable SSL via config file (See config section for more info)

  • Option 2

Stop the server

# default is the namespace by default. You can ignore it if you never use the option.
$> genserve stop yourservername --namespace default     

Locate the configuration file

$> genserve path settings <servername> --namespace default        # => Then edit the given path 

### or

# If you have set a default editor in your O.S. 
$> genserve edit server <servername> --namespace default

Edit to update it

  "yourservername": {
    "serverName": "yourservername",
    "defaultPage": "index.html",
    "protocol": "https://",
    "host": "",
    "port": 443,
    "serverUrl": "",
    "ssl": "on",
    "cert": "/path/to/certificates/ssl/yourservername.crt",
    "key": "/path/to/certificates/yourservername/ssl/yourservername.key",
    "ca": "/path/to/certificates/yourservername/ssl/",

Start the server

$> genserve start yourservername --namespace default     

Enable CORS

To enable CORS:

$> genserve enable servername cors

To customise CORS, edit the server's file.

$> genserve edit server <servername>

Global Options modifiable Via Configuration file

To get the path to the file that holds default global settings:

$> genserve path settings --global

To edit

$> genserve edit settings --global

It is possible only to show some columns with the option --columns.

# This command will only present the columns active, serverUrl, port and serverName
$> genserve scan --columns "serverUrl,port"

🚫 Note: The column "serverName" is always displayed

Run server from a shell or in a CI system

# Start the server in the background
$> genserve start testserver --dir . --port 5000

# Run your tests
$> npm test

# Stop the server
$> genserve stop testserver

Run a server from within a script

(async function ()

    const {startGenServer, stopGenServer, infoGenServer} = require("genserve");

    // Server name
    const SERVER_NAME = "my-test-server";

    // Start the server, which name will be "my-test-server"
    const serverStarted = await startGenServer({name: SERVER_NAME, port: 9880});
    if (!serverStarted)
        console.error("Failed to start server");
        return ;

    // Display info server (Optional)
    const data = await infoGenServer({name: SERVER_NAME});

    // Stop the server "my-test-server"
    await stopGenServer({name: SERVER_NAME});
