A simple http server in just one file

Devd is a console-based open source HTTP server, aimed at developers but also simple enough for anyone to use.

How simple? It's just one executable, no other components required, and you don't have to mess around with lengthy and complex configuration files.

Instead, the developer suggests this as a quick start:

devd -ol .

This command opens a browser window to display the current folder (or you can just type in another browser whenever you like), and reloads your site when files change.

Browse your site and devd displays a colour-coded log of what's happening in your console window.

This is great for quick testing, but there's also reverse proxy support (devd -w ./src http://localhost:8080), throttling and latency simulation, smart routing and a few other extras for more experienced users to try.


A lightweight http server with some nice advanced touches.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
