Tiny, simple static file server using environment variables for configuration

Available on Docker Hub at https://hub.docker.com/r/halverneus/static-file-server/

Environment variables with defaults:

# Optional Hostname for binding. Leave black to accept any incoming HTTP request
# on the prescribed port.
HOST=
# If assigned, must be a valid port number.
PORT=8080
# Folder with the content to serve.
FOLDER=/web
# URL path prefix. If 'my.file' is in the root of $FOLDER and $URL_PREFIX is
# '/my/place' then file is retrieved with 'http://$HOST:$PORT/my/place/my.file'.
URL_PREFIX=
# Paths to the TLS certificate and key. If one is set then both must be set. If
# both set then files are served using HTTPS. If neither are set then files are
# served using HTTP.
TLS_CERT=
TLS_KEY=

Without Docker

PORT=8888 FOLDER=. ./serve

Files can then be accessed by going to http://localhost:8888/my/file.txt

With Docker

docker run -d -v /my/folder:/web -p 8080:8080 halverneus/static-file-server:latest

This will serve the folder "/my/folder" over http://localhost:9090/my/file.txt

Any of the variables can also be modified:

docker run -d -v /home/me/dev/source:/content/html -v /home/me/dev/files:/content/more/files -e FOLDER=/content -p 8080:8080 halverneus/static-file-server:latest

Also try...

./serve help
# OR
docker run -it halverneus/static-file-server:latest help

This maybe a cheesy program, but it is convenient and less than 6MB in size.
