How to

Install gem

gem install rack-try_static

Add Rack::TryStatic middleware to your

require 'rack'
require 'rack/contrib/try_static'

use Rack::TryStatic, 
    :root => "public",  # static files root dir
    :urls => %w[/],     # match all requests 
    :try => ['.html', 'index.html', '/index.html'] # try these postfixes sequentially

# otherwise 404 NotFound
run lambda { [404, {'Content-Type' => 'text/html'}, ['whoops! Not Found']]}



TryStatic middleware serves static content trying to find matching file. When match found it gets delegated to Rack::Static to be processed.
