AngularJS File Manager

Build Status Codacy Badge npm version GitHub issues Dependency Status Coverage Status npm GitHub license

This is a minimal and light-weight file manager to explore your files on the server developed in AngularJS using Bootstrap 4

This project is based on excellent work of Jonas Sciangula Street, but since he's not planning to maintain it I'm moving forward with my own fork.

There are example backend connectors in (e.g. PHP, PHP-FTP, Python, Java) or you can create your own backend connector following the connector API.

Try the DEMO


1) Run npm i @azerafati/angularjs-filemanager --save

2) Install dependencies

3) Include the dependencies in your project

<!-- third party -->
  <script src="/node_modules/jquery/dist/jquery.min.js"></script>
  <script src="/node_modules/angular/angular.min.js"></script>
  <script src="/node_modules/angular-translate/dist/angular-translate.min.js"></script>
  <script src="/node_modules/ng-file-upload/dist/ng-file-upload.min.js"></script>
  <script src="/node_modules/bootstrap/dist/js/bootstrap.min.js"></script>

<!-- angularjs-filemanager -->
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="/node_modules/@azerafati/angularjs-filemanager/dist/angular-filemanager.css">
  <script src="node_modules/@azerafati/angularjs-filemanager/dist/angular-filemanager.js"></script>

4) Use the angular directive in your HTML

angular.module('AngularJS-FileManager').config(['fileManagerConfigProvider', function (config) {
  var defaults = config.$get();
    appName: 'AngularJS File Manager',
    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.
