Quick tip: Sharing a directory over the web easily

Sometimes you need to share a file, show someone a file, serve a client side exploit in a local network, but you don't have a web server on your machine, or don't want to upload the file to a server... Here is a very useful tip to run a web server serving the actual directory with Python:

shell>python -c "import SimpleHTTPServer;SimpleHTTPServer.test()"

there is an easier way:

shell>python -m SimpleHTTPServer

By the default it will use the port 8000.

You can create an alias for easy launching
