You can use the serve_static method of your application object to send
a file to the client. It sets the content-type based on the extension
of the file you are sending. The syntax is

orbit_app:serve_static(web, path_to_file)

It returns the contents of the file, so just tail-call it in your
handler. serve_static also supports X-SendFile, if you set
use_xsendfile to true in your application object.
