Operator

Operator is a web server. You provide a directory and Operator serves it over HTTP.

It serves static files the way you'd expect, but can also serve dynamic content that is generated at request time by handlebars templates or executables. For example, during your request a script ran on the server to timestamp this page: 2024-07-22T08:35:56Z.

⚠️ Operator is alpha! Please don't use it for anything important yet.
