Browse current Terminal directory in a web browser

also, this allows you to access the file system through a browser from anywhere on your local network.

Just point a browser towards the ip address of your mac instead of localhost (i.e. something like or you could open up the system preferences, click on the Sharing pane and find your computer's name there. mine says "macbook.local" so i'd point the browser towards macbook.local:8000.

I just tried connecting from my iphone. Loading text or images works but streaming media (even just mp3s) isn't supported, i don't think it likes the way this service buffers.

Also beware, I inadvertently tapped on a 600+ page pdf which crashed my phone fairly convincingly.
