Jifty::View::Static::Handler - Jifty view handler for static files
This 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 new Create a new static file handler. Likely, only the "Jifty::Handler" needs to do this. roots Returns all the static roots the handler will search show $path Handle a request for $path. If we can't find a static file of that name, return undef. handle_request $path An alias for "show" file_path $path Returns 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 $path An alias for "file_path". mime_type $path Returns 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 $mimetype Print $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_modified Sends a "304 Not modified" response to the browser, telling it to use a cached copy.
