NAME

Rapi::Fs - Plack-compatible, instant ExtJS file browser

SYNOPSIS

 use Rapi::Fs;
 
 my $app = Rapi::Fs->new({
   mounts  => [ '/some/path', '/foo/blah' ]
 });

 # Plack/PSGI app:
 $app->to_app

Or, using rapi-fs.pl utility script:

 rapi-fs.pl /some/path /foo/blah

DESCRIPTION

This is a Plack-compatible file browser application written using RapidApp. It generates a nice-looking dynamic web interface to browse and view arbitrary files and directories for the configured "mounts" using a standard, split-panel tree layout:

For a live demo, see: rapi.io/fs

Internally, the RapidApp module class Rapi::Fs::Module::FileTree does the heavy lifting, and that module can be configured and used directly within an existing RapidApp.

The convenience utility script rapi-fs.pl is also available, which is a simple wrapper around this module, to be able to fire up a fully working and self-contained app on-the-fly (including launching a built-in webserver) from the command-line.

CONFIGURATION

Rapi::Fs extends RapidApp::Builder and supports all of its options, as well as the following params specific to this module:

mounts

List of directory "mount" points to use/show in the application. This is the only required parameter and supports a flexible syntax. Mounts can be supplied as simple directory string paths, HashRef configs, or "driver" objects (consuming the Rapi::Fs::Role::Driver role). The default driver class which ships with the Rapi::Fs package is Rapi::Fs::Driver::Filesystem.

The following mount specifications are all equivalent:

 $app = Rapi::Fs->new({
   mounts  => [ '/some/path' ]
 });

 $app = Rapi::Fs->new({
   mounts  => [{
     driver => 'Filesystem',
     name   => 'path',
     args   => '/some/path'
   }]
 });

 $app = Rapi::Fs->new({
   mounts  => [ 
     Rapi::Fs::Driver::Filesystem->new({
       name   => 'path',
       args   => '/some/path'
     })
   ]
 });

When using the HashRef syntax, the 'driver' param is a class name relative to the Rapi::Fs::Driver::* namespace. To supply a full class name, prefix with '+', for instance:

 $app = Rapi::Fs->new({
   mounts  => [{
     driver => '+My::Fs::Driver',
     name   => 'Foobar',
     args   => 'something understood by My::Fs::Driver'
   }]
 });

Different forms can also be mix/matched:

 $app = Rapi::Fs->new({
   mounts  => [
     {
       driver => '+My::Fs::Driver',
       name   => 'Foobar',
       args   => 'something understood by My::Fs::Driver'
     },
     '/path/to/something',
     {
       name  => 'perl5-lib',
       args  => '/usr/lib/perl5'
     },
     Some::Other::Driver->new({
       name   => 'larry',
       args   => 'bla',
       foo    => 'bar'
     })
   ]
 });

Rapi::Fs::Driver::Filesystem is the only driver which has been implemented so far, but this module was written with the idea of implementing other drivers in mind, both as possible additional core-modules as well as user-defined drivers. See Rapi::Fs::Role::Driver for more info on the driver API.

filetree_class

Defaults to Rapi::Fs::Module::FileTree.

filetree_params

Optional extra params to supply to the filetree_class constructor.

METHODS

to_app

PSGI $app CodeRef. Derives from Plack::Component

TODO

  • Add write support (move/rename/copy/delete/edit)

  • Add "Mount" as a 4th Node type, to allow nesting other kinds of drivers within a structure.

Planned additional drivers

  • SSH/SFTP

  • IMAP

  • JSON/YAML files (i.e. browse data structure)

  • Zip/archive

  • Multipart/MIME
