Beyond is an application for running web servers on your Mac. Beyond is easy to use, simple to set up, and secure by design. You will be running a web server in seconds.
Beyond creates a web server on your Mac. Open the Beyond application and seconds later your web server is ready to browse and share. Setting up the web server is as easy as choosing a folder on your computer. The chosen folder becomes the source of the web server's files.
Using Beyond is easy; there are no complex configuration files, no security risks, and no technical knowledge required.
Beyond is simple. Every Beyond document is a web server. Starting and stopping the server is as easy as opening and closing a document.
Creating a web server in Beyond is effortless:
Beyond is document based. Each document is an independent web server. The Beyond application and the embedded web servers are sandboxed to protect you and your files.
Each web server can only read from the folder you chose to serve. The server can only serve static files; there are no executables or scripts to worry about.
Beyond does not need an Internet connection or even network access to work. You can control the reach of the server. Limit serving to the computer, to the local network, or go beyond your network.
Everything needed to get started is included within Beyond.
Beyond is a true Mac app. Built around a modern document based architecture, Beyond includes support for:

Beyond's tiny memory requirement and multi-threaded performance will delight. Want to run many servers on your laptop? No problem. Beyond is light weight and tuned for performance.
Beyond supports NAT-PMP and UPnP protocols for setting up access beyond your network.
