What would you like to do?
IPython line magic for launching a static fileserver. It uses Ruby as the Python fileserver sucks a bit.
import os
from IPython.core.magic import register_line_magic as line_magic
def fileserver(args):
path, port = args.split(" ") if args else (".", "8080")
os.system('ruby -run -ehttpd "{}" -p{}'.format(path, port))
