Virtual file system implementation
0.9.2 Latest release released

Baked File System

Include (bake them) static files into your binary and access them anytime you need.

Installation

Add this to your application's shard.yml:

dependencies:
  baked_file_system:
    github: schovi/baked_file_system

Usage

Load library with:

require "baked_file_system"

Load folder with absolute path

class FileStorage
  BakedFileSystem.load("/home/my_name/work/crystal_project/public")
end

Better and more often usage will be this, where you need to locate files in your repository That repository can be in different locations (imagine more ppl working on same program) Use relative path and pass second argument __DIR__

This weird API is because how crystal macros and variable/constants resolving in them works. You cant pass any expression in them

class FileStorage
  BakedFileSystem.load("../public", __DIR__)
end

And finally how to get files from that storage

file = FileStorage.get("path/to/file.png")

file.read    # returns content of file
file.encoded # returns encoded content, which can be used in base64 urls
file.name    # returns name of file
file.mime_type    # returns mime type
file.size    # returns size of original file

When try to get missing file, BakedFileSystem thows BakedFileSystem::NoSuchFileError exception

path = "missing/file"

begin
  FileStorage.get(path)
rescue BakedFileSystem::NoSuchFileError
  puts "File #{path} is missing"
end
