Build Status

metalsmith-serve

A metalsmith plugin to serve the build directory. Best used in development and with metalsmith-watch.

Installation

$ npm install metalsmith-serve

Basic Example

var metalsmith = require('metalsmith');
var serve = require('metalsmith-serve');
 
metalsmith(__dirname)
  .use(serve())
  .build(function(err) {
    if (err) { throw err; }
  });

This will serve Metalsmith's build directory on localhost:8080. By default, metalsmith-serve will only log error requests.

Advanced Example

var metalsmith = require('metalsmith');
var serve = require('metalsmith-serve');
 
metalsmith(__dirname)
  .use(serve({
    port: 8081,
    verbose: true,
    http_error_files: {
      404: "/404.html"
    },
    redirects: {
      '/old_url.php'        : '/new_url/',
      '/old_url.php?lang=en': '/en/new_url/'
    }
  }))
  .build(function(err) {
    if (err) { throw err; }
  });

This will serve Metalsmith's build directory on localhost:8081 and will show all served requests. Requests for missing files will be served with the contents of /404.html. /old_url.php and /old_url.php?lang=en will be redirected with 301 headers.
