Browse current Terminal directory in a web browser
Authored by: mono toto on Apr 24, '09 06:15:46AM

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 192.168.1.2:8000) 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.
