    express-static-search

    Module to get static files with deep scan of relative paths.

    Install

    npm install express-static-search

    Example

    const expressStatic = require("express-static-search");
    const express = require("express");
    const path = require("path");
    const app = express();
    
    const staticPath = path.join(__dirname, 'assets');
    
    const options = {
      beforeSend: (res, fileName) => {
        if(fileName.match('is-not-static.js')) {
          return false; // return false to cancel responding of this file
        }    
    
        res.setHeader('Cache-Control', 'public, max-age=3600');
      }
    }
    
    app.use(expressStatic(staticPath, options));

    Description

    Let's say client is on /hello/world/ page and requests static-file.mp3. It is relative path, so browser sends to the server full url /hello/world/static-file.mp3. In some cases we can't set absolute path, but want to get the necessary file. This library scans every part of url to find a match. It will try to get:

    • staticPath + /hello/world/static-file.mp3
    • staticPath + /world/static-file.mp3
    • staticPath + static-file.mp3

    If any file of the specified exists, then you will get it.

    Install

    npm i express-static-search
