  • supports auto HTTP CACHING (via ETag)
  • supports adding custom attribute to each file
  • supports file streaming via HTTP - Content Range
  • supports custom handler executing before saving file to the storage

How to storage store files?

Directory contains max 1000 files. Each file has .data extension and each file contains internal META information (2 kB). Each directory contains the config file with the informations about all files.

/your-path/000-000-001/000000001.data

if directory contains more than 999 files then storage automatically create a new directory:

/your-path/000-000-002/000001000.data

The benefit: querying by the file ID {Number} and auto-pipe to HttpResponse



var storage = require('filestorage').create('/path/to/directory/');

// You can create more file storages
// EXAMPLE:
var storage_users = require('filestorage').create('/path/to/users/');
var storage_products = require('filestorage').create('/path/to/products/');
var storage_logs = require('filestorage').create('/path/to/logs/');


var storage_default = require('filestorage').create();

// default path: /process–directory/filestorage/
