Why should I use the FileBrowser?¶
If you need your editors or customers to manage files, the FileBrowser is an alternative to an FTP-client. Moreover, you are able to define different image versions according to your websites grid. Alternatives to the FileBrowser can be found at http://djangopackages.com/grids/g/file-managers/.
Do I need Grappelli?¶
Grappelli is a requirement for using the FileBrowser. There are several filebrowser-no-grappelli repositories (most of them on GitHub), but we don’t follow the development.
I need help!¶
Why are there no fancy effects?¶
The FileBrowser is about managing files. We think that you should prepare your files before uploading them to the server.
How do I upload to another server?¶
Use a custom storage engine, see https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/1.11/howto/custom-file-storage/.
Why do I need image-versions?¶
You need image-versions if your website is based on a grid.
Is the FileBrowser stable?¶
We’ve developed the FileBrowser for a couple of years and use it with almost all of our clients. That said, Grappelli is the more stable and mature application.
How can I contribute?¶
Help is very much needed and appreciated. Test the FileBrowser and submit feedback/patches.
Who develops the FileBrowser?¶
The FileBrowser is developed and maintained by Patrick Kranzlmüller & Axel Swoboda of vonautomatisch.
