Managing Static Files

Lifeboat allows developers to serve Static Files directly through nginx instead of the Xojo Web app. This can offload stress from the Xojo Web app and can serve files to users faster.

The Static Files view lists the directories configured to serve static files. Static Files can be configured to serve out of a path on the same domain as a Web App. Configuring a directory to serve from a domain without a path will prevent the domain from listing in the Web App configuration view.

Double clicking on an entry will attempt to show the most relevant view. If an entry is configured with an address, double clicking will show the remote directory and it's contents. If no address is configured, the Static File configuration view will be displayed.
