Development serverΒΆ

handroll comes with a built-in development server. The server helps develop websites even faster by watching the changes you make. As files in your site are created, modified, or moved, the server will update your output with each change.

The development server is available with the watch command. The server will make your site accessible on http://localhost:8000.

Here is an example:

matt@eden:~/handroll/sample$ handroll watch
