docsify: Serve local documentation on `localhost` at the specified port.
$ docsify serve --port ${80} ${path-to-directory}
try on your machine

The command docsify serve --port ${80} ${path-to-directory} is used to start a local server for hosting a documentation site generated using Docsify, a documentation site generator. The command takes in two parameters:

  1. --port ${80}: This parameter sets the port on which the server will listen. In this case, it is set to port 80. Port 80 is the default port for HTTP traffic, so this means the site will be accessible through the URL http://localhost/ without specifying a port number.

  2. ${path-to-directory}: This parameter indicates the path to the directory where the documentation files are located. The path should be specified as the absolute or relative path to the directory containing the documentation files. This allows Docsify to serve the content of the directory as a documentation website.

By executing this command, a local server will be started on port 80 and the provided directory will be served as a documentation site by Docsify. The website can then be accessed on http://localhost/.
