Serving your static site

Once you've run the pelican command to generate your static site, you'll want to see what it looks like. To do this, you need to run a simple HTTP server - nothing fancy.

(Now you can see the advantage of a static site.)

Run a simple HTTP server with python, which has a built-in HTTP server that can be run from the command line.

Run the server from the output/ directory, which contains the static content for your site.

$ cd pelican/output/

$ python -m http.server    # serve content on localhost:8000

$ python -m http.server 8888  # serve content on localhost:8888

Now navigate to localhost:8000 or localhost:8888 in your browser to view your static site.
