cowboy_static — static file handler

Description

The cowboy_static module implements file serving capabilities by using the REST semantics provided by cowboy_rest.

Types

opts() = [Option]

Option = {priv_file, atom(), string() | binary()}
        | {priv_file, atom(), string() | binary(), Extra}
        | {file, string() | binary()}
        | {file, string() | binary(), Extra}
        | {priv_dir, atom(), string() | binary()}
        | {priv_dir, atom(), string() | binary(), Extra}
        | {dir, string() | binary()}
        | {dir, string() | binary(), Extra}

Extra = [ETag | Mimetypes]

ETag = {etag, module(), function()} | {etag, false}

Mimetypes = {mimetypes, module(), function()}
        | {mimetypes, binary() | {binary(), binary(), [{binary(), binary()}]}}

Configuration for the static handler.

The handler can be configured for sending either one file or a directory (including its subdirectories).

Extra options allow you to define how the etag should be calculated and how the mimetype of files should be detected.
