Hi Helene,

If you do not want to setup a front-end webserver on your development machine (like me), you can easily serve static files via Comanche/Seaside.

The Seaside-FileSystem package from the http://www.squeaksource.com/Seaside30LGPL repository contains the necessary functionality to easily do this.

From the Seaside configuration webpage, you can then add a 'File directory' (as an application). This allows you to serve files from a directory on disk via the built-in webserver of the Smalltalk image.

Hope that sets you on your way!
