Auto Running HTML files in server with for custom folder
Asked by MOHAMMED SHAHID about a year ago
Hi All, How to auto-run the server for custom folder created for HTML. Any specific cmd ? any config in .cmrc file ?
I tried with adding 'folderName/fileName.html' in tabs of .cmrc file, but it did'nt work.
I tried to reload the server, that as well did'nt fix. Any idea, what I might be doing wrong ? Thanks
We use static-server npm package to server html files.
By simply typing
static-server on the playground terminal you can iniate the http server, by doing this the static server takes the defualt arguments i.e. port = 3000 and file =
But, in codedamn playgrounds only the ports
1338 are accessbile by users, so you have to define the port using the
Also to disable the static server from showing cached response we add the flag
So now to start the http server at a different html page you can make use of the flag
--index followed by the file location
So your complete command would be
static-server -p 1337 --no-cache --index folderName/filename.html
You can add the same line in your
.cdmrc file as well
tabs: ['folderName/filename.html'] terminal-one: static-server -p 1337 --no-cache --index folderName/filename.html
If you want to know more about how to use our
.cdmrc file you can read our blogpost
Hope this helps you
