a question about Nodejs

Go to solution Solved by Jisagi,

You could check out serve-index. It should mirror the default apache behaviour of listing directoy contents. There are also a few examples at the bottom of the README on their github page

a quick side note: im currently learning node js, i have no f*cking idea what im doing.

 

Ok so I want to make node JS act like Nginx or apache2. like I can drag in a index.html, node js willl see it and make it useable

 

Folder structure:

 

-docroot (this folder is for only indexs, no server junk, like /views/)

--index.html

---(folder)

---index.html

 

iif i add

 

-docroot

--index.html

---(folder2)

---index.html

 

Node JS will auto pick it up and use it.

 

My current server.js

var fs = require('fs');
var http = require('http');
var express = require('express');
var app = express();
var path = require('path');
let ejs = require('ejs');
const { JSDOM } = require( "jsdom" );
const { window } = new JSDOM( "" );
const $ = require( "jquery" )( window );
app.set("view engine", "ejs");
// ejs/jquery isnt working, so can ingore
app.get('/', function(req, res) {
    res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname + '/index.html'));
});
app.get('/about', function(req, res) {
    res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname + '/about/index.html'));
});
app.use('/flyer/', express.static(path.join(__dirname, '/flyer/')))
app.use('/utils/', express.static(path.join(__dirname, '/utils/')))
app.get('*', function(req, res){
    res.status(404)
    res.sendFile(path.join(__dirname + '/utils/404.html'));
  });
//var data = fs.readFileSync('counter'); <-- ingore, not used
app.listen(8081);
console.log('Server running at http://127.0.0.1:8081/');

Not sure if it even lets you display an index.* file at all like an apache or nginx does. It does look like like it really is only good for listing directoy contents. I couldn't find anything regarding checks for something like and .htaccess like file for any possible configuration either. I might be wrong, but I don't think this allows for this kind of feature.

I was looking on the Node_mod Folder, and i cant seem to find anything to refer to .html (only text/html) is there anything you can see i can mess with to get EJS working?

I really don't 😕 Doesn't seem like this does what you need.
