Ultrose is a one-file file manager / browser.

As a zero-install single file under 50 KB, you get:

  • Image Gallery (with thumbnail generation)
  • 24 Custom themes to choose from (including "random")
  • Emailer
  • Area for nav links
  • Public File Browser
  • Private File Manager (upload, delete, move)
  • No other files needed beyond index.php.


The only file you need index.php. Just drop it in a web server that supports PHP5+, and you are good to go! The jQuery libraries it uses are hosted by Google's public hosting services.


The gallery is triggered automatically for all images Ultrose sees in the directory. The default thumbnail directory is thumbnails and is hidden from users not logged in. This diretory and thumbnails will be created by Ultrose in the same directory as index.php. Thumbnails are generated as-needed when Ultrose sees an image file and when that image has been updated.

The gallery can be disabled so images are listed as normal files.


Rather than using the contact page on, please open issues using GitHub. I don't have time for individual support, but I'll try to look at issue tickets as they appear. This project is considered feature complete for now.


The first 180 lines of code is the best documenation. You can enable/disable login and file browsing
