  • serve local files
  • configure listening port
  • configure listening interface (e.g. localhost or all interfaces)
  • custom http handlers possible
  • websocket support available
  • works nice with chrome.runtime.onSuspend
  • options for autostart, start in background, etc etc.
  • handles range requests, HEAD, etc
  • options for CORS
  • optional PUT, DELETE request (for upload files)
  • sets MIME types
  • can render directory listing
