How can I run a html file from terminal?

The Solution to How can I run a html file from terminal? is


For those like me, who have reached this thread because they want to serve an html file from linux terminal or want to view it using a terminal command, use these steps:-

1)If you want to view your html using a browser:-
Navigate to the directory containing the html file
If you have chrome installed, Use:-

google-chrome <filename>.html


                OR
Use:-

firefox <filename>.html

2)If you want to serve html file and view it using a browser
Navigate to the directory containing the html file
And Simply type the following on the Terminal:-

pushd <filename>.html; python3 -m http.server 9999; popd;


Then click the I.P. address 0.0.0.0:9999 OR localhost:9999 (Whatever is the result after executing the above commands). Or type on the terminal :-

firefox 0.0.0.0:9999


Using the second method, anyone else connected to the same network can also view your file by using the URL:- "0.0.0.0:9999"
