Hi!, I am moving the project from AngularJS to React + Redux (react-filemanager), it's very important for me your collaboration on my development tasks and time. Please help me to move forward with a donation by paypal :)


A very smart filemanager to manage your files in the browser developed in AngularJS following Material Design styles by Jonas Sciangula Street

This project provides a web file manager interface, allowing you to create your own backend connector following the connector API.
By the way, we provide some example backend connectors in many languages as example (php-ftp, php-local, python, etc)

Try the DEMO



Backend API

Read the docs

Using in your existing project

1) Install deps using yarn with
yarn install

2) Include the dependencies in your project


3) Use the angular directive in your HTML

Extending the configuration file by adding a script


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,


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.


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