You can use Python as a quick way to host static content. On Windows, there are many options for running Python, I’ve personally used Cygwin and ActivePython.
To use Python as a simple HTTP server just change your working directory to the folder with your static content and type
python -m SimpleHTTPServer 8000, everything in the directory will be available at
Edit: To do this with Python, 3.4.1 (and probably other versions of Python 3), use the http.server module:
python -m http.server 8000
python3 -m http.server 8000
py -m http.server 8000
