hg serve [OPTION]...

start stand-alone webserver

    Start a local HTTP repository browser and pull server. You can use this
    for ad-hoc sharing and browsing of repositories. It is recommended to use
    a real web server to serve a repository for longer periods of time.

    Please note that the server does not implement access control. This means
    that, by default, anybody can read from the server and nobody can write to
    it by default. Set the "web.allow_push" option to "*" to allow everybody
    to push to the server. You should use a real web server if you need to
    authenticate users.

    By default, the server logs accesses to stdout and errors to stderr. Use
    the -A/--accesslog and -E/--errorlog options to log to files.

    To have the server choose a free port number to listen on, specify a port
    number of 0; in this case, the server will print the port number it uses.

    Returns 0 on success.
