How can I use DO block storage as static folder in express app?
I can’t seem to find an existing answer to my problem, so I hope someone can help me here:
I have an app with express backend where users can upload images that show up on their profile page.
Right now (in development) all files are served by express through
app.use('/public', express.static(__dirname + '/public'))
Now I decided on DO for deployment (which btw ran quite smoothly using dokku, thanks for that!) and wanted to ask if there is a simple way to have express serve (and upload) the files from (and to) DO block storage - so that the front end is still able to access all files from
That would be amazingly helpful.
(btw, the uploaded images get resized and saved in 3 versions each and the therefor existing folder structure is why I thought it was better to go with block storage vs. object storage - but I would be also open for suggestions on how to make this work using object storage)
Thanks in advance and sorry if I’m missing something obvious!
