Am working on building some tooling that involves cloning a git repository and passing its path to my go server. One of the duties of that server is to make a static files folder available at a specific path.
This is the code snippet I use to achieve it.
r := mux.NewRouter() //gorilla mux r.PathPrefix("/static").Handler( http.StripPrefix( "/static/", http.FileServer(http.Dir("./static-dir/"), ), ) http.Handle("/", r) http.ListenAndServe(":8080", nil)
Note: The comma at end of each line, including at the end of
http.StripPrefix call, is required; otherwise
go compiler complains of bad syntax. Using commas to enable splitting statements into multiple lines feels a little ridiculous.
