A http middleware to wrap vfs instances and expose them via a RESTful interface
This module is a connect/stack middleware module that wraps a vfs instance and serves it via a HTTP RESTful interface.
The module is a setup function that creates a middleware instance.
var root = "";var vfs = require'vfs-local'root: processcwdhttpRoot: root;require'http'createServerrequire'stack'require'vfs-http-adapter'"/rest/" vfslisten8080;console.log"RESTful interface at " + root;
All HEAD requests are converted to GET requests internally and act identical, except there is an internal flag in the vfs layer telling it to not stream the body.
Serve a file to the client as a stream. Supports etags and range requests.
Serve a directory listing as a JSON document.
This is served as a streaming json document with a weak etag (since the order of the entries is not defined.) It supports conditional GET requests
vfs.readdir below for the format of the JSON.
Recieve a file from the client and save it to the vfs. The file body is streamed.
Create a directory
Delete a file.
Delete a directory (not recursive)
POST is used for various adhoc commands that are useful but don't fit well into the RESTful paradigm. The client sends a JSON body containing the request information.
