Directory listings over HTTP
Recently, a co-worker chided me about there being no apparent quick & easy utilities for Perl that served a directory listing over HTTP; specifically, something that matched the functionality of:
python -m SimpleHTTPServer
I perused CPAN, but found only modules that could be used to create a utility.
A couple of vim-strokes later...now there is App::dirserve. Suggestions for a better name are welcome.
It uses Mojolicious' development daemon for the work, and as such has one pre-requisite. It has a bit more functionality that the python solution, and more importantly, css gradients make it much prettier.
usage: dirserve [OPTIONS]
These options are available:
--directory Directory to serve. Defaults to current directory.
--index-page Page to show by default. Defaults to directory listing.
--port Port to serve on. Defaults to 3000.
--no-dots No navigating to parent directories via '..'.
--help This message.
