A webserver built for serving a fancier directory listing together with the capacity to download individual files from it.
The urge to create this came from using nginx for autoindexing files. If you've used this you know it works really well, but it creates something that looks rather ugly and is not superfriendly for a human to navigate. The goal of dir-listing-server is to create a local webserver which does the same thing as autoindex in nginx, but also makes it quite navigable and looks a bit better than just plain HTML.
Example script for deploying (includes all available parameters):
Deployment with Dockerfile
Dockerfile builds a docker image which can serve from
within the container. If you want to put the index server within
something like a Docker Swarm then I would suggest you add a volume to
the container and serve that volume with for example
docker run --env DIR_LISTING_TOP_DIRECTORY=/root/served --volume /path/to/my/directory:/root/served -p 4455:4455 dir-listing
I personally use this with sshfs to view and browse several directories and files from the same webpage.
