NPM Version NPM Downloads Linux Build Windows Build Test Coverage Gratipay

Serves pages that contain directory listings for a given path.

Install

$ npm install serve-index

API

var serveIndex = require('serve-index')

serveIndex(path, options)

Returns middlware that serves an index of the directory in the given path.

The path is based off the req.url value, so a req.url of '/some/dir with a path of 'public' will look at 'public/some/dir'. If you are using something like express, you can change the URL "base" with app.use (see the express example).

Options

Serve index accepts these properties in the options object.

filter

Apply this filter function to files. Defaults to false. The filter function is called for each file, with the signature filter(filename, index, files, dir) where filename is the name of the file, index is the array index, files is the array of files and dir is the absolute path the file is located (and thus, the directory the listing is for).

hidden

Display hidden (dot) files. Defaults to false.

icons

Display icons. Defaults to false.

stylesheet

Optional path to a CSS stylesheet. Defaults to a built-in stylesheet.

template

Optional path to an HTML template. Defaults to a built-in template.

The following tokens are replaced in templates:

  • {directory} with the name of the directory.
  • {files} with the HTML of an unordered list of file links.
  • {linked-path} with the HTML of a link to the directory.
  • {style} with the specified stylesheet and embedded images.
view

Display mode. tiles and details are available. Defaults to tiles.

trailingSlashes

If set to true, links to directories will include a trailing slash. Defaults to false.

var http = require('http')
var serveIndex = require('serve-index')
var serveStatic = require('serve-static')
 
// Serve directory indexes for public/ftp folder (with icons)
var index = serveIndex('public/ftp', {'icons': true})
 
// Serve up public/ftp folder files
var serve = serveStatic('public/ftp')
 
// Create server
var server = http.createServer(function onRequest(req, res){
  var done = finalhandler(req, res)
  serve(req, res, function onNext(err) {
    if (err) return done(err)
    index(req, res, done)
  })
})
 
// Listen
server.listen(3000)

Serve directory indexes with express

var express    = require('express')
var serveIndex = require('serve-index')
 
var app = express()
 
// Serve URLs like /ftp/thing as public/ftp/thing
app.use('/ftp', serveIndex('public/ftp', {'icons': true}))
app.listen()
