manifesto, a node.js module

Automatically updates cache.manifest version number upon files modification. Supports multiply manifest files.

Example

When you call it first time it check mtime for each of listed files in your manifest file, and starts to watch them. After that it serve your manifest file from memory, and adjusts version number to the lastest mtime among listed files.

You can find browser-ready example in test.js

var http = require('http')
  , manifesto  = require('manifesto');

http.createServer(function (req, res) {

  if (req.url == '/manifest.appcache')
  {
    manifesto.fetch('./test-manifest.appcache', '.', function(err, data) {
      if (err) {
        res.writeHead(404, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
        res.end('Something went wrong\n');
        return;
      }

      res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/cache-manifest'});
      res.end(data);
    });
  }
  else
  {
    res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});
    res.end('Hello world!\n');
  }
}).listen(1337, "127.0.0.1");

If you make request to manifest.appcache:

$ curl http://localhost:1337/manifest.appcache

The output will be:
