npm install dirlist
Use dirlist in your
express application by passing it the root folder you would like it to auto index.
var connect = require('connect'), dirlist = require('dirlist'); //Base folder that will be searchable from the url. var base = '/Users/lemendo/Music/'; var host = "localhost"; var port = 1337; connect( connect.favicon(), dirlist(base), connect.static(base) ).listen(port, host); console.log('Server running at http://'+host+':'+port+'/');
To enable file download, you must also set a
static middleware with the same path as the dirlist middleware.
