Plack::App::File - Serve static files from root directory
my $app = Plack::App::File->new(root => "/path/to/htdocs")->to_app;
# Or map the path to a specific file
mount "/favicon.ico" => Plack::App::File->new(file => '/path/to/favicon.ico')->to_app;
This is a static file server PSGI application, and internally used by Plack::Middleware::Static. This application serves files from the document root if the path matches with the local file. Use Plack::App::Directory if you want to list files in the directory as well.
Document root directory. Defaults to . (current directory)
The file path to create responses from. Optional.
If it's set the application would ALWAYS create a response out of the file and there will be no security check etc. (hence fast). If it's not set, the application uses root to find the matching file.
Set the file encoding for text files. Defaults to utf-8.
Set the file content type. If not set Plack::MIME will try to detect it based on the file extension or fall back to text/plain. Can be set to a callback which should work on $_ to check full path file name.
To install Plack, copy and paste the appropriate command in to your terminal.
perl -MCPAN -e shell
