Ajax Directory Management

Category: Showcase

Chris Lufer has created another ajax file management system using Prototype, Scriptaculous, and lots of his own JS.

What makes this different?

  • ajax based directory listing
  • drag and drop ability to move files and folders just like you would
    expect an OS to behave
  • an upload system that’s integrated right into the UI. The progress is
    ajax powered with the help of perl and php in the backend.
  • ‘download cart’ for batch file downloading or emailing files
  • File info and meta data

Just FYI

Very simple, very primitive. Very robust. I’ve expanded it in some of my own work (behind corporate firewall, and you can’t see it. So there.)

Concerning the “Fatal Error Allowed memory size of 8388608 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 25568220 bytes) in /var/www/directory/relay.php on line 253”:

If I double-click a large file (56MB), it downloads with no problem. If I drop it in the Download Cart, I get the fatal outofmemory message.

Any thoughts?

We have just released beta of our new product – IT Hit AJAX File Browser. Here is the online demo:

Our AJAX File Browser utilizes standards-compliant WebDAV XML for communicating with server. The server can run server based on .NET Framework, Java, PHP, or any other programming language.

If you run Microsoft Internet Explorer you can create and open for editing Microsoft Word, Excel, Power Point documents directly from AJAX Browser interface and then save them back to server from Microsoft Office user interface without the need to download them to local file system or installing any third-party tools.
