This minimal setup allows you to run nginx using the current folder as the doc-root. NOTE: python's simplehttpserver may be good enough for you. This is just a nice simple nginx setup.
  1. Get all of these files into the target folder
  2. Run the following commands:
chmod +x *.sh
sed "s|SOURCE_ROOT|$(pwd)|" nginx.conf.template > nginx.conf
nginx -c $(pwd)/nginx.conf
echo "**** Access running server at http://localhost:8080 ****"
worker_rlimit_nofile 8192;
events {
worker_connections 4096;
http {
server {
listen 8080;
server_name localhost;
include /usr/local/etc/nginx/mime.types;
default_type application/octet-stream;
sendfile on;
tcp_nopush on;
tcp_nodelay on;
access_log nginx-access.log;
error_log nginx-error.log;
location / {
Copy link

Could instead use the -p option
nginx -c $(pwd)/nginx.conf -g 'daemon off;' -p $(pwd)
