Is there any way to set the directory where you want to start a SimpleHTTPServer or BaseHTTPServer?
If you’re using
SimpleHTTPServer directly from command line, you can simply use shell features:
pushd /path/you/want/to/serve; python -m SimpleHTTPServer; popd
In Python 3 you have to use:
pushd /path/you/want/to/serve; python -m http.server; popd
The SimpleHTTPServer module has been merged into http.server in Python 3.0
