NGINX FancyIndex Theme

A prettier theme for nginx' fancyindex module. Further details about this excellent module can be found at the dev's github page.

####NOTE: NGX-FANCYINDEX truncates the file name to 50 characters subtracts 3 and then appends a "..>" to the truncated name. This can be fixed by recompiling NGX-FANCYINDEX after changing line 55 of "ngx_http_fancyindex_module.c":




#define NGX_HTTP_FANCYINDEX_NAME_LEN 500 (or some other number greater than 50)
