This is a simple static file server tool running on node.js and the Connect middleware framework.

It basically wraps the connect-static and connect-staticCache middleware to form a command line tool.


Statify can be installed via NPM

npm install -g statify


You can start a static HTTP server in any directory by launching the statify command in the current directory or by supplying another directory with the -d option. The default is the current working directory.

The -p option lets you specify the port that the server will be listening on. It defaults to port 8000.

-l enables simplistic directories listing.

Example: statify -d ~/Downloads -p 3000 -c false will serve your "Downloads" directory without caching on port 3000.
