NAME ^

Mojolicious::Static - Serve static files

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Mojolicious::Static;

  my $static = Mojolicious::Static->new;
  push @{$static->classes}, 'MyApp::Controller::Foo';
  push @{$static->paths}, '/home/sri/public';

DESCRIPTION ^

Mojolicious::Static is a static file server with Range, If-Modified-Since and If-None-Match support, based on RFC 7232 and RFC 7233.

ATTRIBUTES ^

Mojolicious::Static implements the following attributes.

classes

  my $classes = $static->classes;
  $static     = $static->classes(['main']);

Classes to use for finding files in DATA sections with Mojo::Loader, first one has the highest precedence, defaults to main. Only files with exactly one extension will be used, like index.html. Note that for files to be detected, these classes need to have already been loaded and added before "warmup" is called, which usually happens automatically during application startup.

  # Add another class with static files in DATA section
  push @{$static->classes}, 'Mojolicious::Plugin::Fun';

  # Add another class with static files in DATA section and higher precedence
  unshift @{$static->classes}, 'Mojolicious::Plugin::MoreFun';

paths

  my $paths = $static->paths;
  $static   = $static->paths(['/home/sri/public']);

Directories to serve static files from, first one has the highest precedence.

  # Add another "public" directory
  push @{$static->paths}, '/home/sri/public';

  # Add another "public" directory with higher precedence
  unshift @{$static->paths}, '/home/sri/themes/blue/public';

METHODS ^

Mojolicious::Static inherits all methods from Mojo::Base and implements the following new ones.

dispatch

  my $bool = $static->dispatch(Mojolicious::Controller->new);

Serve static file for Mojolicious::Controller object.

file

  my $asset = $static->file('images/logo.png');
  my $asset = $static->file('../lib/MyApp.pm');

Build Mojo::Asset::File or Mojo::Asset::Memory object for a file, relative to "paths" or from "classes", or return undef if it doesn't exist. Note that this method uses a relative path, but does not protect from traversing to parent directories.

  my $content = $static->file('foo/bar.html')->slurp;

is_fresh

  my $bool = $static->is_fresh(Mojolicious::Controller->new, {etag => 'abc'});

Check freshness of request by comparing the If-None-Match and If-Modified-Since request headers to the ETag and Last-Modified response headers.

These options are currently available:

etag
  etag => 'abc'

Add ETag header before comparing.

last_modified
  last_modified => $epoch

Add Last-Modified header before comparing.

serve

  my $bool = $static->serve(Mojolicious::Controller->new, 'images/logo.png');
  my $bool = $static->serve(Mojolicious::Controller->new, '../lib/MyApp.pm');

Serve a specific file, relative to "paths" or from "classes". Note that this method uses a relative path, but does not protect from traversing to parent directories.

serve_asset

  $static->serve_asset(Mojolicious::Controller->new, Mojo::Asset::File->new);

Serve a Mojo::Asset::File or Mojo::Asset::Memory object with Range, If-Modified-Since and If-None-Match support.

warmup

  $static->warmup;

Prepare static files from "classes" for future use.
