Install svh via the awesome npm
$ sudo npm install -g svh
$ svh serve --helpUsage: serve [options] [path]Options:-h, --help output usage information-l, --log <log> default is no-p, --port <port> startServer port. default port is 3113-m, --main <homepage> main page. fill without file extension. support html only-w, --watch <isWatching> watch project root directory for file changes. default yes-n, --ngrok <ngrok> using ngrok to expose local web server to internet. default no-N, --ngrok-path <ngrokpath> ngrok binary path. default to /usr/bin/ngrok-s, --subdomain <subdomain> subdomain for ngrok-a, --auth <auth> simple auth for ngrok
to run svh server on default port 3113
$ svh serve your_project_dir
or customize the port with
$ svh serve -p 3003 your_project_dir
svh will pickup
index.html file by default but you can customize it with
For example to pickup
main.html as startup page, type this command
$ svh serve -m main your_project_dir
svh will watch project directory and auto reload browser it if there are any files changes.
To disable auto watch use
$ svh serve -w false your_project_dir
###Use with ngrok
v0.0.6 will support ngrok it's awesome tool by the way, but make sure that it already installed in your system. The default path svh will recognize it is
other than that, you should pass ngrok path via
To use ngrok use command option
-n and svh will create random subdomain for your project.
For example to expose
your_project_dir to public internet just type this command
$ svh serve -n yes your_project_dir
To expose your local project to public internet but with basic authentication just type this command
$ svh serve -n yes -a user:password project_dir
You can pass custom subdomain name via
-s option. For example if you type this command
$ svh serve -n yes -a shoot:angel -s cross-finger your_project_dir
then you can access your local project on address
If ngrok installed on custom path use
-N option so svh will recognize it.
$ svh serve -n yes -N /home/angel/bin/ngrok -a shoot:angel project_dir
svh currently doesn't support for ngrok configuration file
