sersve Build Status

A simple directory server. It works for my own purposes so far, but feel free to try or contribute.


git clone https://github.com/tilpner/sersve.git
cd sersve
cargo build --release # leave off --release if impatient
target/release/sersve # target/debug/sersve respectively
# You can now visit `localhost:8080` in a browser
