File Manager Material Design Folder using AngularJS


A very smart filemanager to manage your files in the browser developed in AngularJS following Material Design styles by Jonas Sciangula Street

This project provides a web file manager interface, allowing you to create your own backend connector following the connector API.
By the way, we provide some example backend connectors in many languages as example (php-ftp, php-local, python, etc)

Extending the configuration file by adding a script


<script type="text/javascript">
angular.module('FileManagerApp').config(['fileManagerConfigProvider', function (config) {
  var defaults = config.$get();
    appName: 'angular-filemanager',
    pickCallback: function(item) {
      var msg = 'Picked %s "%s" for external use'
        .replace('%s', item.type)
        .replace('%s', item.fullPath());

    allowedActions: angular.extend(defaults.allowedActions, {
      pickFiles: true,
      pickFolders: false,

Create a new build with your changes

  gulp build || node node_modules/gulp/bin/gulp.js build

You can do many things by extending the configuration. Like hide the sidebar or the search button. See the list of default configurations.


To contribute to the project you can simply fork this repo. To build a minified version, you can simply run the Gulp
task gulp build. The minified/uglified files are created in the dist folder.
