I create a script with contents like this next to a directory I want to serve

#!/usr/bin/env bash
docker run -d \
  --name="cjlyth_github_io" \
   -p 80:8080 \
   -v $(pwd)/ \

mine is a little more complex but for the purpose of this readme, lets leave it at that...

... ok so here is the one im using as of this commit date

#!/usr/bin/env bash
DATA_DIR="$( cd ${1:-.} && pwd )"
[[ -d "${DATA_DIR?}" ]] || {
    echo "Unable to find directory: ${DATA_DIR}"
    exit 1
CONTAINER_NAME="$(basename ${2:-${DATA_DIR}})"
docker restart ${CONTAINER_NAME?} &> /dev/null && {
    echo "Docker container '${CONTAINER_NAME}' restarted"
} || {
    echo "Running docker image 'cjlyth/http-server' as '${CONTAINER_NAME}'"
    docker run -d -P \
      --name="$CONTAINER_NAME" \
       -v $DATA_DIR:/data \
       cjlyth/http-server    || {
           docker stop $CONTAINER_NAME | xargs --no-run-if-empty docker rm
           exit 2
docker port $CONTAINER_NAME 8080 | xargs --no-run-if-empty -I{} xdg-open http://{} 1>/dev/null

with the above script you can serve a directory like so ./ ./
