grunt-http-server v1.14.0

grunt-http-server was bumped to version 1.14.0 and it now allows you to setup custom pages.

npm i grunt-http-server --save-dev  

custom pages

Let's say that you need the root url to serve your README.md, making it easier for developers to access it from within the developer environment.

grunt.initConfig({  
    'http-server': {
        'dev': {
            customPages: {
                "/": "./README.md"
            }
        }
    }
});

Another common use case would be to test your compiled html code and serve it from a defined path.

grunt.initConfig({  
    'http-server': {
        'dev': {
            customPages: {
                "/": "./index.html",
                "/about": "./about.html"
            }
        }
    }
});

Don't forget to share your story, if you have a different use case.
