This endpoint serves static files from disk using Rack::File.

URL paths are matched with static files according to expected conventions: path, path.html, path/index.html.

Precompressed versions of these files are checked first. Brotli (.br) and gzip (.gz) files are supported. If path.br exists, this endpoint returns that file with a +Content-Encoding: br+ header.

If no matching file is found, this endpoint responds 404 Not Found.

Pass the root directory to search for matching files, an optional +index: “index”+ to change the default path/index.html, and optional additional response headers.
