simplehttpserver or install apache

when I become more advanced should I continue to use the simplehttpsever or will there come a time when I'll need to download some software?

Xampp is likely one of the best choices to work locally. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XAMPP

Or you can install Visual Studio Code with it's 'Live Server' extension .

Both are easy to install and use, I prefer VS Code and in this case It'd be the best choice since this is the FrontEnd track.
