A simple web server for local web development.
.dmg for mac, the
.exe for Windows, or the
.AppImage for Linux.
Servez is an stand alone app that runs a simple web server. with a GUI to start/stop and choose a folder to serve.
I’ve worked with many people, often students, who are not comfortable with command lines and certainly not comfortable setting up a big server like Apache.
Servez provides them with an easy way to get started without having to install multiple dependencies nor having to integrate things with their system. No adding to paths, no downloading 3 different pieces of software. Just run and start.
You can download it here.
