DESCRIPTIONThis is deprecated and is being port to a stack of plack middleware and plack::app::file
This class takes care of serving out static files for a Jifty application.
When fully operational, it will use an algorithm along the lines of the following:
* Static files are served out of a separate root
* If static files go through apache:
* How do we merge together the N static roots? * If static files go through Jifty::Handler
* We need a flag to allow them to go through the dispatcher, too
* return ``True'' (304) for if-modified-since
* if the browser accepts gzipped data,
see if we have a cached gzipped copy
if so, send it
see if we have a marker indicating that gzip is a lose
if so, send uncompressed
gzip the content send the gzipped content * if the browser doesn't accept gzipped content send the content uncompressed
newCreate a new static file handler. Likely, only the "Jifty::Handler" needs to do this.
rootsReturns all the static roots the handler will search
show $pathHandle a request for $path. If we can't find a static file of that name, return undef.
handle_request $pathAn alias for ``show''
file_path $pathReturns the system path for $path, searching inside the application's static root, loaded plugins' static roots, and finally Jifty's static root. Returns undef if it can't find the file in any path.
template_exists $pathAn alias for ``file_path''.
mime_type $pathReturns the mime type of the file whose path on disk is $path. Tries to use MIME::Types to guess first. If that fails, it falls back to "File::MMagic".
send_file $path $mimetypePrint $path to STDOUT (the client), identified with a mimetype of $mimetype.
send_http_header [COMPRESSION, LENGTH, LAST_MODIFIED]Sends appropriate cache control and expiration headers such that the client will cache the content. COMPRESSION is deprecated
send_not_modifiedSends a ``304 Not modified'' response to the browser, telling it to use a cached copy.
