serve function

Future<HttpServer> serve(
  1. Handler handler,
  2. Object address,
  3. int port,
  4. {SecurityContext? securityContext,
  5. int? backlog,
  6. bool shared = false,
  7. String? poweredByHeader = 'Dart with package:shelf'}

Starts an HttpServer that listens on the specified address and port and sends requests to handler.

If a securityContext is provided an HTTPS server will be started.

See the documentation for HttpServer.bind and HttpServer.bindSecure for more details on address, port, backlog, and shared.

Every response will get a "date" header and an "X-Powered-By" header. If the either header is present in the Response, it will not be overwritten. Pass poweredByHeader to set the default content for "X-Powered-By", pass null to omit this header.
