Hi Ahmad,

I'm using the route config show in static_world_app:start/2; e.g.:

start(_Type, _Args) ->
    Dispatch = cowboy_router:compile([
        {'_', [
            {"/[...]", cowboy_static, {priv_dir, static_world, "",
                [{mimetypes, cow_mimetypes, all}]}}
            ]}
    ]),
    {ok, _} = cowboy:start_http(http, 100, [{port, 8080}], [
    {env, [{dispatch, Dispatch}]}
    ]),
    static_world_sup:start_link().

Many thanks for your help.

Lloyd
