Build & Deploy Issue Forks Stars Releases npm version

A dev server for rapid prototyping. It provides a neat interface for listing the directory's contents and switching into sub folders.

In addition, it's also awesome when it comes to serving static sites. If a directory contains an index.html, serve will automatically render it instead of serving directory contents, and will serve any .html file as a rendered page instead of file's content as plaintext.

Rename: ssr => sgo
sgo: Server Go

⚠️ ssr package has been donated to a certain team in Ali.


🗂 Serve static content like scripts, styles, images from a directory.
🖥 Reroute all non-file requests like / or /admin to a single file.
♻️ Reload the browser when project files get added, removed or modified.
📚 Readable source code that encourages learning and contribution.
💥 Remove the redundancy proxy feature, Please use mocker-api.
⚛️ Preview the static page of the React/Vue/Angular project.
