Return the resolved path and a stat_result.

Parameters:
  • directories – A list of directory paths.

  • file_path – A file path to resolve

Returns:

A tuple with an optional resolved Path instance and an optional stat_result.

async __call__(scope: Scope, receive: Receive, send: Send) None#

ASGI callable.

Parameters:
  • scope – ASGI scope

  • receive – ASGI receive callable

file_system: Any = <litestar.file_system.BaseLocalFileSystem object>#

The file_system spec to use for serving files.

Notes

opt: dict[str, Any] | None = None#

A string key dictionary of arbitrary values that will be added to the static files handler.

__init__(path: str, directories: list[PathType], html_mode: bool = False, name: str | None = None, file_system: Any = <litestar.file_system.BaseLocalFileSystem object>, opt: dict[str, Any] | None = None, guards: list[Guard] | None = None, exception_handlers: ExceptionHandlersMap | None = None, send_as_attachment: bool = False) None#
guards: list[Guard] | None = None#

A list of Guard callables.

exception_handlers: ExceptionHandlersMap | None = None#

A dictionary that maps handler functions to status codes and/or exception types.

send_as_attachment: bool = False#

Whether to send the file as an attachment.

to_static_files_app() ASGIRouteHandler#

Return an ASGI app serving static files based on the config.

Returns:

StaticFiles
