mabishu-apache-autoindex: An autoindex theme for Apache autoindex module with Mabishu Studio branding

mabishu-apache-autoindex is a set of html, css, icons and image files designed to work together with the mod_autoindex module to make the default Apache file listings look a little nicer.

Installation

First, get a copy of the "include" folder – the easiest way is to change to the document root of the domain you want to style, and check it out from git:

$ cd /var/www/YOUR.VHOST.LOCAL $ git clone http://github.com/frandieguez/mabishu-apache-autoindex.git

This should create an ‘include’ folder in the parent of your document root. Next, you need to configure Apache to use the "includes" files to style your directory listings. I use the following config, which you’ll need to adjust to match your particular setup – the ‘icons’ and 'includes' alias and the ‘mod_autoindex’ section are the main areas to pay attention to:

# Virtualhost example configuration file with autoindex theme support ServerName your.vhost.local

DocumentRoot /var/www/your.vhost.local/public_html

# Define where is the theme and icons directory
Alias /icons/ /var/www/your.vhost.local/include/icons/
Alias /include/ /var/www/your.vhost.local/include/

<Directory "/var/www/your.vhost.local/public_html">
    AllowOverride All
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all

    # Tell Apache to add theme support to autoindex
    <IfModule mod_autoindex.c>
        Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
        IndexOptions +FancyIndexing 
        IndexOptions +VersionSort 
        IndexOptions +HTMLTable 
        IndexOptions +FoldersFirst 
        IndexOptions +IconsAreLinks 
        IndexOptions +IgnoreCase 
        IndexOptions +SuppressDescription 
        IndexOptions +SuppressHTMLPreamble 
        IndexOptions +XHTML 
        IndexOptions +IconWidth=16 
        IndexOptions +IconHeight=16 
        IndexOptions +NameWidth=*
        IndexOrderDefault Descending Name
        HeaderName /include/header.html
        ReadmeName /include/footer.html
    </ifModule>

</Directory>

You’ll need mod_autoindex for any of this to work – it should be installed by default with Apache in most linux distributions.

Disclaimer

The formatting relies on a few javascript hacks which may or may not work exactly as intended if the output of your apache directory listings differs a lot from what is expected. If the output appears strange, try playing around with the javascript formatting in header.html, or drop me a line if you need a hand.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
