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". Note that this method 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 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.
