    New web-based file manager.. need suggestions

    I'm working on a new look for the file manager I'm building, can anyone play around with it and give me suggestions? (On the layout and any features that are missing).

    Almost everything in it works already (but most stuff requires newer browsers, example, wysiwyg editor only in IE 6).

    The url is:

    Will this be a comercial script or will it be for your use only?

    Commercial. This is the second version of EasyHost that I just started on last week (switched to a mysql database instead of dbm and mod_perl module instead of cgi so it's pretty fast)

    What you see in it now is basicly the same as the first version but with new faster code and database.. and I'm stumped on what new features to add to it hehe

    Any suggestions?

    Wow!!!! I really like the design.

    Thanks, I have to admit I went a little crazy with css hehe, took a bit of time but I came up with this design to be used as a standard throughout all of the software.

    The cool thing is you can change the orange to be red or whatever you want by simply modifing the one css file.

    Hmm, if you create a new directory, the list on the left should refresh, also there is an image missing.

    This is great work Ryan!

    I'm totally impressed by this. You really have a good feel for building an intuitive interface.

    I've played with it a bit, the *only* thing I can complain about is that missing image, looks like it's part of the tree view images (a vertical line without a node?)
    <!-- boo! -->

    Ok, I put the image in there now and the directories now refresh when you create them.

    Note, I'm quickly fixing the code so it also refreshes when you delete, rename or move a directory too so don't report that hehe

    Nice... good job.

    I'm not too fond of the color scheme, but I guess it's okay.

    Also, the copyright text is a bit hard to read. You might want to change the text color or something.

    Its a commercial script... $150 as I remember...

    Still very much worth it though....

    Well since I'm just getting started on everything it's not ready to be released as beta yet but I am working on a admin tool to install and automaticly update the src (like cvs).

    Once I got that working I will post the url to download it. As long as you have perl and mysql installed there is no reason this shouldn't work on what every platform you use (There will be a mod_perl and cgi based interface)

    ...and maybe once it's out of beta a few of you might purchase a license to keep receiving updates? hint hint

    hahah.. Nice idea...

    Do you have to upgrade???

    No you can keep running the beta version as long as you like, I will even be releasing a free version of the software for those who just need a simple file manager or want to code their own mods.

    Of course most of the features won't be in these versions though so I can assure you the small yearly fee is well worth it.

    To give a quick example of one of the new features in 2.0, I created a mod_perl module to dynamicly configure sub-domains. So if you want to create the sub-domain "bob.jim.com" you just have to create a "bob" directory in the file manager. You can then access that directory using the url http://www.jim.com/bob/ http://bob.jim.com/ or even http://www.bob.jim.com/

    This works in sub-directories too.

    But anyways.. back to coding

    I have made a lot of changes to EasyHost since my last post and it now runs on it's own server:

    You might find it a little slow, my connection has been acting weird lately.
