Serve random files

Vaguely API-compatible with serve-static.

API

serveRandom(root, options)

Create a new middleware function to serve files from within a given root directory. With each inbound request, a random file will be selected from the given root directory. The module will not recurse into subdirectories.

The response's max-age is always set to 0.

Options

fallthrough

Set the middleware to have errors (clients using an HTTP method other than GET or HEAD, or root being empty) fall-through as just unhandled requests, otherwise forward a client error. The difference is that client errors will cause this middleware to simply next() to your next middleware when this value is true. When this value is false, these errors (even 404s), will invoke next(err).

Defaults to true.

Acknowledgments

This module heavily borrows code from serve-static - many thanks to the great people who work on that module.
