Comment on Anvil

Brilliant tool, I think I'll be using this.

However, if you don't want to install stuff like this, you can also:

1. cd into your site folder (using your Terminal of choice).
2. Then enter: open http://localhost:8000; python -m SimpleHTTPServer

Voila! And if you find this useful, you can add an alias in your ~/.zshrc (if you use zsh) or ~/.bash_profile (using bash):

alias serve="open http://localhost:8000; python -m SimpleHTTPServer"

Main caveat doing this compared to using Anvil/pow is that you don't get a fancy sitename.dev address, but a localhost:8000 one.
