A tiny HTTP server for simple needs

Just place your files in $HOME/snap/qhttp/common and run qhttp and you're ready to go! Ideal for simple HTTP needs like basic file transfers or quick experiments, with snaps built in sandboxing by default!

You can specify a port with: qhttp -p 12345, but remember you need to run with sudo for ports below 1025, and if you do, the files need to be in /root/snap/qhttp/common instead!

This snap is small, coming in at just 4KB by itself when the base snaps are already preinstalled! The q stands for quantum, as 4KB is the smallest possible possible size for squashfs and hence snaps!
