Overview

A Web Server for Chrome, serves web pages from a local folder over the network, using HTTP. Runs offline.

Web Server for Chrome is an open source (MIT) HTTP server for Chrome. It runs anywhere that you have Chrome installed, so you can take it anywhere. It even works on ARM chromebooks. It now has the option to listen on the local network, so other computers can access your files. Additionally, it can try and get an internet address. Many people use this to do basic web development on a chromebook. It is also handy for sharing files over a local network between computers, or even on the internet.

First time using ChromeOS and installed this 200 OK! Easy and friendly settings, probably the easiest webserver I've used. Loved it. If this can add extra server side support would be great (ie, PHP etc).

I have used this tool for a LONG time and it is one of the best tools i have ever found it allows me to test my games quickly without needing to make a website and upload a file everytime i want to test my games. it also allows me to have a library of everygame I made that runs on chrome without needing an internet connection. most importantly though it allows me to bring my games to school and play them with friends. thank you (:
