Rubyweb

Rubyweb is a small program I wrote to address a small problem, but one that keeps popping up. Apparently, the “normal” way of running a simple web server in Ruby is too difficult, so people have been using Python’s SimpleHTTPServer instead. Now I’m totally cool with using Python or any other language’s tools to do that, but the main argument seems to be the number of characters you have to type in order to launch the web server.

Rubyweb is very simple to install and use:

1
2
gem install rubyweb
rubyweb

Have a look at Rubyweb’s GitHub repo and let me know what you think.
