This is a node.js module that allows you to spin up a static file server either from code or from the command line.
npm install static-cling
Don't forget to use the global flag (--g) if you want the command line option everywhere.
At the command line
Yeah, that's it. You have the option to pass in -p for port, otherwise it defaults to port 3000, -d for directory, if you want to specify a different directory than the one you are in, and lastly -f for the default html page, this defaults to index.html
Static Cling is available to be used as a module as well if you want to use node to host static files.
If using the module you can override the defaults by providing a config object
//defaultsvar config =root: '.'port: 3000filename: 'index.html'const cling =//overriding defaults;
