Web server in one line of bash

If you want to quickly save a file through http but you don’t want to install a web server, you can just use netcat.
You can run:
[code language=”bash”]
while true; do { echo -e ‘HTTP/1.1 200 OK\r\n’; cat index.html; } | nc -l 8080; done
[/code]

index.html can be any file you want to serve it.

You can access it after that as: http://host_ip:8080/
