toscawidgets2 (tw2) aims to be a practical and useful widgets framework that helps people build interactive websites with compelling features, faster and easier. Widgets are re-usable web components that can include a template, server-side code and JavaScripts/CSS resources. The library aims to be: flexible, reliable, documented, performant, and as simple as possible.

jQuery is a fast and concise JavaScript Library that simplifies HTML document traversing, event handling, animating, and Ajax interactions for rapid web development. jQuery is designed to change the way that you write JavaScript.

elFinder is an open-source file manager for web, written in JavaScript using jQuery UI. It is inspired by Finder in Mac OS X.

The main goal of the file manager is to let you work with remote files with the same convenience as on your own computer.

This module, tw2.jqplugins.elfinder, provides toscawidgets2 (tw2) access to the elFinder widget.
