Mongrel and mimetype?

Dear Mongrel People,

lighttpd allows me to assign a mimetype to a file which ends with a
specific suffix.

For example if I have a file named, "helloworld.manifest", and I serve
it using lighttpd,
I can declare its mimetype with the following declaration in
lighttpd.conf:

mimetype.assign = (
  ".manifest" => "text/cache-manifest",
  ".css" => "text/css",
  ".gif" => "image/gif",
  ".htm" => "text/html",
  ".html" => "text/html",
  ".jpeg" => "image/jpeg",
  ".jpg" => "image/jpeg",
  ".js" => "text/javascript",
  ".png" => "image/png",
  ".swf" => "application/x-shockwave-flash",
  ".txt" => "text/plain"
)

With Mongrel, how do I declare the mimetype of "helloworld.manifest" ?

Hi b,

Dear Mongrel People,

This is a Rails list, not Mongrel. While I don't consider myself a
Mongrel expert I think I can help you with your question.

AFAIK, you don't. The reason is that Mongrel is used, at least in 'our'
world, to serve dynamic content to front-facing web servers like Apache,
Lighttpd, nginix, ... In fact, if you type 'lighttpd vs ' in the google
search box in Firefox you get a list of web servers that are reasonable
comparisons. Mongrel's not in the list.

HTH,
Bill
