Extending the configuration file

<script type="text/javascript">
angular.module('FileManagerApp').config(['fileManagerConfigProvider', function (config) {
  var defaults = config.$get();
    appName: 'angular-filemanager',
    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,

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.


For transparency into our release cycle and in striving to maintain backward compatibility, angular-filemanager is maintained under the Semantic Versioning guidelines.
