I think there’s a couple of things here. The scope of the original HTML5 implementation did not include writing a HTTP server in LCS. It was before my time at the company but I believe a significant proportion of the project was Peter’s first thing he did in LC and he probably wasn’t aware of the fact there’s a few HTTPd implementations around the community. Anyway, now that we have one included in the IDE we definitely want to implement a deploy library so that you just need to click the Test button and it will pop up in your browser. Bonus points for being able to add extra browsers so you can choose a target.

I create a report about this a while back <>

Anyway, this could either be contributed by someone in the community or done in house when we get a chance.
