import devon from 'https://cdn.skypack.dev/devon';
Lightweight Development HTTP Server written in nodejs
If you installed devon global, you only have to switch to your project directory and type in your terminal devon, hit enter and have fun.
Set the argument followed by an equal sign and the value, like --port=9090.
none or boolean
shows a short help message
none or boolean
prevents the log messages
-d, --daemonize does not need a value (but you can set true or false if you want)
Some note to where devon loads files: In the directory where you start, devon will take this as document location and all paths in the URL are relative to that.
Devon has a simple reverse proxy handling. Add a .proxy-named file to the document location with content like this (example):
The top-level keys are regular expressions. And the objects to them are the target for the proxy. The content of the first braces is the new request url for the target. So in this example (if you come from localhost:8080) you will get http://localhost:8080/couchdb/foodb to http://127.0.0.1:5984/foodb.
Please do not(!) use this server in production mode. It has no security features and it will be easy to get secret data from your server. It's really only for local (max. office or something like that) development.
