If you invoke the start() method with no arguments, the server will be configured with default values:

Argument Default Value
host “0.0.0.0”
port 8080
protocol http

Secure connections (https)

In order to start a secure server (https), you should specify the optional secureOptions argument when calling the start () method.

The secureOptions is a Map<Symbol, dynamic> that will be forwarded to the HttpServer.bindSecure() method:

import 'package:redstone/redstone.dart' as app;

main() {
  app.setupConsoleLog();
  app.start(secureOptions: {#certificateName: "CN=RedStone"});
}

See the https.dart for a working example.

Static Files

If you need to serve static files, you can use the shelf_static package:

import 'package:redstone/redstone.dart' as app;
import 'package:shelf_static/shelf_static.dart';

main() {
  app.setShelfHandler(createStaticHandler("../web", 
                                          defaultDocument: "index.html", 
                                          serveFilesOutsidePath: true));
  app.setupConsoleLog();
  app.start();
}

## Logging

Redstone.dart provides a helper method to set a simple log handler, which outputs the messages to the console:

app.setupConsoleLog();

By default, the log level is setted to INFO, which logs the startup process and errors. If you want to see all the log messages, you can set the level to ALL:

import 'package:logging/logging.dart';

main() {
  app.setupConsoleLog(Level.ALL);
  // ...
}

If you want to output the messages to a different place (for example, a file), you can define your own log handler:

Logger.root.level = Level.ALL;
Logger.root.onRecord.listen((LogRecord rec) {
  // ...
});
