Original library doesn't seem to be maintained anymore, but here are my changes anyway as we use this fork in production.

  • internal zlib (from fork by @cweider) for dynamic content
  • internal zlib for staticGzip
  • uses modern 'send' npm module to send static data
  • fixes race condition in case multiple node instances access same files
  • re-enabled HEAD request and it should now work properly as lib uses 'send' module

Good catch; stupid mistake. Just fixed it.

Added support for GZIP compression of static assets #376

@nateps, +1 to merging this. We're using @tikonen's fork as well... resolved our issues with the current NPM build.

@nateps +1 for merging this, also using @tikonen 's fork. Seems to be an issue with socket.io and gzip on Windows, getting "This socket is closed."
