The architecture

The manager is modular and each of its part is autonomous. All parts are bound to each other by Javascript events which you can connect to inside your scripts to customize the behaviour of the manager.

Parts of the manager:

  • Catalogue tree
  • File uploading
  • File and directory viewing area
  • Actions toolbar
  • Cropper.js
  • Codemirror (planned)
  • Search (planned)
  • Recently opened catalogues (planned)
  • Pinned catalogues (planned)

Each part on Joomla! side comes as JForm field. On the front-end, the parts are named as modules. Thereby, you can combine parts of the File Manager as you need inside of your forms that use JForm constructor.

System requirements: PHP 7.1 and Joomla 3.9+

This extension is a result of common development with our partners Delo-Design and we express our gratitude to guys for this cooperation!
