goose - A substitute for python2 -m SimpleHTTPServer

goose is a cli-webserver intended to be a drop-in replacement for python2 -m SimpleHTTPServer. It comes with some nice things like being able to easily specify webroot. To prevent accidental exposure it also binds to by default.

Here is some examples.

$ goose         # serve from pwd
$ goose ../root # serve from somewhere else
$ goose -p 8090 # serve on custom port

$ pacaur -S goose-bin
