patch to introduce new option for autoindex to show dot-files

comment:1 by Shin Sterneck, 10 years ago

Because of the following disucssion/feedback in the forum, I have changed the option from "autoindex_show_hidden_files" to "autoindex_show_dot_files" to allow for some cross platform support (windows doesn't hide dot-files, so the word hidden does not make much sense here)

New patch is attached to this document: "ngx_autoindex_show_dot_files.patch​"

the new syntax for this option is now:

syntax: autoindex_show_dot_files on | off;
default: autoindex_show_dot_files off;
context: http, server, location

Very bad name for a variable, and very long. Breaks the syntax

autoindex_flags dot_files | hidden_files | empty;

autoindex_flags dot_files;
autoindex_flags dot_files hidden_files;

or
autoindex dot_files hidden_files;
autoindex on;

??

It is better to filter .. and .
