Binary file download

I’m building a server using python and bottle.

How can I handle a request for a binary file?

I have read that I should use flask. There is a way for doing that without using flask?

Best answer

Yes, you should use static_file function:

from bottle import static_file    

@route('/download/<filename:path>')
def download(filename):
    return static_file(filename, root='/path/to/static/files', download=filename)
