FastApi StaticFiles with mount not working

See original GitHub issue

Describe the bug Our team is struggling to get fastapi-versioning working in our environment since we are serving static assets for our frontend and docs. This seems to be an issue with mount when using StaticFiles.

To Reproduce Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Create the file
from fastapi import FastAPI
from fastapi.staticfiles import StaticFiles
from fastapi_versioning import VersionedFastAPI, version

app = FastAPI(title="My App")

@version(1, 0)
def greet_with_hello():
    return "Hello"

@version(1, 1)
def greet_with_hi():
    return "Hi"

app.mount("/", StaticFiles(directory="/"), name="static")

app = VersionedFastAPI(app)
  1. Run the server uvicorn test:app
  2. Error from running application

AttributeError: 'Mount' object has no attribute 'endpoint'

Expected behavior A versioned API without having to version mounts.

Additional context N/A

@killswitch-GUI , tbh I don’t know if it is an acceptable way of doing things. I didn’t see what does the code under the hood to confirm that.

aminelemaizicommented, Mar 28, 2021

I’ve solved this issue by using the app.mount after the app = VersionedFastAPI(app) And if you need to access the root path / (for your landing page for example), define the @app.get and its function after the app = VersionedFastAPI(app) too.
