Node.js Question

Deploy Nodejs on Heroku fails serving static files located in subfolders

I'm deploying a NodeJs application using Heroku. Everything works fine except a little issue serving static files.

I have the following configuration

app.use(express.static(__dirname + '/htdocs'));


It works fine except when I try to serve static files located in sub folders.


www.example.com/bar.js // this serves the file /htdocs/bar.js

www.example.com/foo/bar.js // this can't find the file
/htdocs/foo/bar.js


I forgot to say that on my local environment everything works fine, might be something with heroku but I can't find the reason. Did someone had this problem before? Solutions?

Thanks!

Answer

Finally I found the solution.

I solved that just adding the npm version in my package.json.

{
    "name": "bla",
    "version": "0.0.1",
    "dependencies": {
        "express": "3.2.6"
    },
    "engines": {
        "node": "0.10.11",
        "npm": "1.2.25"
    } 
}
