Direct Content Access

Bytengine allows you to server your content directly (as static content) via Http GET. You have to first make the bytengine file public by issuing a database.makepublic command which will make the content available at the following url:

http://[your bytengine server address]/bfs/direct/[layer]/[database]/[path]


  • [layer] is the bytengine file layer you want to retrieve (JSON or Bytes)
  • [database] is the database name
  • [path] is the bytengine file path

The response header will either be application/json if the layer is json and application/octet-stream if the layer is bytes
