Drupal resources middleware

This is a very simple module for Drupal 7 that just redirects requests.

Motivation

When I migrate an existing Drupal 7 website to my dev environment I don't want to copy all the filesystem since there usually are a lot of files. That implies that the images and other resources are not displayed on my dev installation.

This module just redirects the requests that go to my dev installation of Drupal 7 to the production domain. That allow the images and other resources to be displayed on my local installation and having a dev environment as similar as possible to the production one.

How does it work

Very simple. When this module is enabled, all the requests are analyzed to determine if they have to be redirected. A request is redirected in case that it goes to any file located in the public directory (normally sites/default/files) and this file does not exist in the local filesystem.

There is a file called settings.php with an array with one element called site_url. The default value for that item is http://example.com- You just have to change http://example.com by your production domain and enable the module.

About

A very simple module used for loading the public files from another domain in case that they don't exist in the current Drupal filesystem.
