Local WEB Server

After dealing with the JavaScript YouTube API, I can confirm that, for some projects, it is necessary to use a web server.
If not, when you open in the browser a local file (as currently NAB does), many javascript features could be blocked due to security reasons.

Fortunately it is very easy to install and configure a local web server.
I am using this one:

http://www.usbwebserver.net/en/

Just download and unzip to get ready.
You can even define in its minimalistic user interface, the root path.
Then point your browser URL to http://localhost:8080/ and the files in the rrot path will be loaded through a web server.

The possibilities are endless as you can place there php files and mysql databases.
I'm sure it is possible to develop plugins with database access this way, and simplify a lot server storage and file manipulation.
But some way to pack aditional files on plugins should be provided on the Plugin Creator.

I know this could seem quite complex right now, even more if you are new dealing with web technologies, but trust me, NAB is becoming the best tool ever to develop web-apps, and things will be simplified very much in the near future. This is the perfect tool from total newbies to professionals.
