This is a great program, and I want to make a few suggestions.

21 Feb 2021, 02:53

I have purchased the relevant license, the price is not expensive, I think it is definitely worth it.

If you are still hesitant to buy File APP, I think it is worth it, so buy it.

Then there will be some suggestions. I am not a programmer and have no relevant experience. Maybe some suggestions will make people feel weird, but trust me, it is definitely not deliberate.

I just hope that the best single-file PHP File APP in the world I have seen so far can be known to more people and even make it more powerful.

All the content is carried out by Google Translate, there may be unclear places, welcome to put forward without understanding the meaning.

1: Let the program support languages of more countries for localization. If necessary, you can find people who help language localization free of charge in the forum.

2: File APP has great potential. It should not focus on the use of images. On the contrary, it should increase its efforts in streaming media and other format files, supporting more video formats, more image formats, and ZIP even Online decompression, I long for it to be more comprehensive.

3: Increase plug-in support, open plug-in production interface, so that more people can make plug-ins to meet their own needs, so that authors should be able to save effort.

4: Make the account system more diversified, so that the administrator can add some users in other groups, and select their viewing rights to limit the content they can watch. In short, it is to add a new registration option. It would be a good consideration, but this may involve things like databases. I don’t know if it will make things worse, but the decision is yours.

5: Let people edit documents online through File App collaboration, such as the file format like Office Family Bucket, which can edit files individually or collaboratively.

I still have many ideas, but I am not a programmer. I can’t measure whether these [ideas] are offensive or not. In any case, they are just a proposal that I personally thought of as good, and you can completely reject them. .

But I will still give these suggestions with a glimmer of hope and let me know if these are possible!

Hi @GuguguBear. Thank you so much for taking the time to offer feedback :star:. Files app will definitely be extended with many improvements and new features. Keep in mind, we aim to keep Files app simple (single file), without database requirement, so new features will be limited to the scope of Files app.

This is coming soon :thumbsup:

Files app does support listing all file types, but images is one of the strong points. Files app supports all image/audio/video formats that are supported by browser, but we can't really preview image/audio/video formats that are NOT supported by browser (for example TIFF, PSD, MKV) ... Basically, Files app supports ALL formats that can display in browser. As for Zip + Unzip, this should be a future feature, but it will need to be limited to users logged in with file-management "permissions", since it's a file-operation to zip or unzip files.

I will definitely consider that option, but I will need to get some ideas about what users want before I can consider how plugins can be created.

Indeed :thumbsup: It would be great to have a user-system that allows access to different root dirs and different permissions for file-managment. Users can be stored in a PHP config file, so it is not strictly necessary with database.

Users can already edit any text-based files, and with a future user-system, this can be controlled by permissions. However, we won't be able to support advanced formats like MS Word, and we won't support advanced collaboration like "revisions", as that requires database and storing past versions of each document. Apart for straight-forward editing, this is simply beyond the scope of what Files app will be capable of.

Feel free to make any suggestions! :clap:
