Anyone done a "File Browser"? Like a free StrongSpace?


#1

Hey all,

Does anyone know of an existing project that acts as a file broswer for
files/directories on the server. I need to implement something for my
students to be able to access their unix home drives on our server via
the web.

It doesn’t sound that hard to do the actual file listing and accessing
in ruby. Authenticating the users could be tricky (PAM?). It could be
done, but I’d prefer not to reinvent the wheel.

Any tips appreciated. Google/Wiki searches for “rails file browser” and
the like didn’t turn up any leads.
