Better file manage plugin?

Added by Hung Nguyen Vu about 9 years ago

Redmine provides a basic file managerment tool:

http://IP/projects/list_files/<ProjectName>

but I found it is too basic.

Would you please recommend a better file manage plugin for Redmine?

"better" is too vague, you will have to be a little more specific. I have found though that most people that need more than what the "files" section in redmine offers are better off using a VCS, for example subversion.

A VCS will not be good for non-technical persons.

File management under Redmine is "flat", which is not good enough.

Files module Redmine should allow us to make a folder, a sub-folder under it like what we do in Windows File Explorer.

Closest thing will be the Filesystem "Repository", with which you can map any directory accessible by redmine to the repository tab, you won't be able to write to it though, so you'd have to implement some flavor of webdav to make in "web-writable".

svn, tortoisesvn are not good for non-technical persons. They won't use them and what they need is something just a little "better" than the "flat management" :)

The Filesystem Repository is not subversion and can be mounted as a normal drive from windows. Read it up and try it out.

Do you mean this patch? http://www.redmine.org/issues/1393
Looks like what I am looking for.

No, I mean the Filesystem SCM from the global settings.

Ok, I should have read the issue before answering: yes, that one, but it's been in core for a long time already.

RE: Better file manage plugin? - Added by Hung Nguyen Vu about 9 years ago

Any SCM mounted to Redmine is read-only which does not meet our requirement (see below).

With http://IP/projects/list_files/<ProjectName>, we can add (upload), remove, brower files.

As I said, you'd have to implement some sort of WebDAV access to the directory, and that should be workable with the provided Redmine.pm authentication and authorization plugin for apache. I know of nothing at the moment that implements a directory structure in the files module of redmine, and I especially know of nothing in redmine (or at least not in trunk) that would have an URI like http://IP/projects/list_files/<ProjectName>.

We need exactly the same thing. Has there been any development on this lately?
