simple http serve a directory from terminal

Very often I need to look at some files in the browser.
For this I use http-server. It is a lightweight and simple cli http server for node.

Just install it with npm:

npm install http-server -g

Then run it:

http-server . -c-1

The -c-1 arg busts the cache (cache =-1)

For convenience I have a small fish function for it:

function serve
  http-server $argv -c-1

So when I want to serve something I just do:

serve .
 Starting up http-server, serving . on:
 Hit CTRL-C to stop the server
