Hi Joachim Thanks for the response. That what I was doing , but its a big job as I will be loading JQuery-ui, JQuery, Bootstrap, MaterialDesign, Seaside.... from the apps menu in SeasideDoc. However!!!! I found an acceptable work-around that bypasses NGINX completely. The base SeasideDoc files are referenced like:  SeasideDocLibrary baseUrl,'jquery-ui.js' ->'' and are  handled via Nginx. I figured out I could bypass NGINX completely by tacking on an :8080 to the url... (SeasideDocLibrary alternatePort: (SeasideDocLibrary baseUrl)) ,'bootstrap' --> '' This means the Show/Call stuff for apps will not be in the cards for the apps, but I think this is an acceptable tradeoff. cheers, t ---- On Wed, 21 Nov 2018 02:41:07 -0500 <jtuchel at objektfabrik.de> wrote ---- Timothy, not sure I am answering the right question here, but the idea of deploying files to the file system in a production system is that requests coming in for files never reach your smalltalk image, thus keeping load off your image. So what is needed is a definition for nginx that "catches" requests to /files/ and redirect them to files onyour filesystem, namely the path you deployed your files to. I am using Apache, so I cannot say what exactly needs to be done in nginx, Here's what's in my apache conf for this purpose:         Alias /files /var/www/app.kontolino         ProxyPass /files !         Alias /favicon.ico /var/www/app.kontolino/OfBuchhaltungFileLibrary/favicon.ico         ProxyPass /favicon.ico !         Alias /robots.txt /var/www/app.kontolino/OfBuchhaltungFileLibrary/robots.txt         ProxyPass /robots.txt ! So all you need to do is to transpile this for nginx ;-) HTH Joachim Am 21.11.18 um 08:32 schrieb gettimothy: _______________________________________________ seaside mailing list seaside at lists.squeakfoundation.org http://lists.squeakfoundation.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/seaside After you deploy the files, does Seaside have a "pass thru" to access those files automatically? or do I have to build one by hand? Here is the background/motivation. At http://menmachinesmaterials.com/SeasideDoc  on left menu, under "apps" you will see that the css/javascript access for 'Zurb Foundation' works and neither work for the Twitter Bootstrap or Jquery apps. The reason is that I use NGinx locations to tell where to look for resources. My SeasideDoc and Zurb File ibraries all access their files relative to the nginx defintions.  So, 'ZurbExamplesLibrary foundation.css' will resolve to the correct path for Nginx to handle. The TBS and JQuery FileLibraries are 'self contained' and the css and js is not delivered via Nginx. I am in the process of creating an additional library for TBS that uses my convention...but... I just discovered the "deployFiles' method and it does do a nice dump of the files I need...but then what? Does Seaside standard dev practice include "switching to another library" that automatically routes to those urls that I am missing?  thx in advance. t _______________________________________________
