static Build Status

Static file-serving handler for the Iron web framework.


This example uses the mounting handler to serve files from several directories.

let mut mount = Mount::new();

// Serve the shared JS/CSS at /
mount.mount("/", Static::new(Path::new("target/doc/")));
// Serve the static file docs at /doc/
mount.mount("/doc/", Static::new(Path::new("target/doc/static/")));
// Serve the source code at /src/
mount.mount("/src/", Static::new(Path::new("target/doc/src/static/")));

Iron::new(mount).listen(Ipv4Addr(127, 0, 0, 1), 3000).unwrap();

Note that static is a reserved keyword, so the crate will need to be imported as extern crate "static" as static_file;.

See examples/ for a complete example that you can compile.


static is a part of Iron's core bundle.

  • Serve static files from a given path.

It works well in combination with the mounting handler.


If you're using a Cargo.toml to manage dependencies, just add the static package to the toml:


git = ""

Otherwise, cargo build, and the rlib will be in your target directory.


Along with the online documentation, you can build a local copy with cargo doc.
