Server for developing Elm projects

Latest on Hackage:

This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow to host generated Haddocks.

Elm Server

This is a simple server to make it easier to develop Elm projects. It lets you view Elm files in your browser and recompile them by refreshing the page.


It comes bundled with the Elm Platform or you can install it individually with cabal install elm-server.


Navigate to the Elm project you want to work on. In that directory run:


This will start the server at http://localhost:8000. If you want to use a different port, use the --port flag (e.g. elm-server --port 8080). In your browser you can navigate through your project and see how each Elm page looks.

elm-server will serve any kind of static content, so you can also look at HTML, images, JSON, or whatever else you may need to serve.
