Directory Server in Go

  • I've been spending time learning Go and here's a small utility I wrote that's similar to Python's SimpleHTTPServer.

    package main
    import (
    func main() {
    	if len(os.Args) < 2 {
    		log.Fatal("You must enter a path")
    	path := os.Args[1]
    	http.Handle("/", http.FileServer(http.Dir(path)))
    	http.ListenAndServe(":8000", nil)

    This creates an HTTP server serving all of the files in the path you specify.

    Just use this:

    go run serve.go /etc

    Or do go build serve.go and it will create a binary you can run.
