nginx comes with something called fancyindex to make styled index pages. Check it out!

On Debian or Ubuntu, install the package nginx-extras:

$ sudo apt-get install nginx-extras

In your nginx config, specify fancyindex options like so:

        location / {

                fancyindex on;
                fancyindex_exact_size off;
