A simple HTTP server that can serve up any directory, built with Dart.
Inspired by python -m SimpleHTTPServer.


Use the dart pub global command to install this into your system.

$ dart pub global activate dhttpd


If you have modified your PATH, you can run this server from any
local directory.

$ dhttpd

Otherwise you can use the dart pub global command.

$ dart pub global run dhttpd

Here’s an example of creating a web app
and then running it with this server:

$ dart create -t web-simple web-app
$ cd web-app
$ dart pub get
$ dart run build_runner build -o build
$ dhttpd --path build/web/  # Serves app at http://localhost:8080


$ dhttpd --help
-p, --port=<port>    The port to listen on.
                     (defaults to "8080")
    --path=<path>    The path to serve. If not set, the current directory is used.
    --host=<host>    The hostname to listen on.
                     (defaults to "localhost")
-h, --help           Displays the help.
