Overview

The JavaScript File Manager (File explorer) is a graphical user interface component for managing the file system that allows users to perform most common file operations, like accessing, editing, and sorting files or folders. This component provides easy navigation to select a file or folder from the file system.


Customizable layout design

The JavaScript File Manager UI consists of a toolbar, navigation pane, and content pane through which the files or folders in the file system can be accessed and managed. The control’s entire layout can be customized with features like right-to-left alignment, enabling or disabling the toolbar and navigation pane, and switching between views.

Toolbar

The JavaScript File Manager toolbar contains tools for performing various operations like upload file download file, and switch views. The toolbar can also be configured with any custom functionality to be performed on the file system.

The navigation pane allows quick and direct access to a file or folder in a file system where the entire folder hierarchy is listed using a tree view. This can be made visible or hidden as needed.


Content pane

The content pane displays the files and folders in the file system. The files in the content pane can be displayed in either a large icon view or a details view.

Multiple file selection in JavaScript File Manager.

Multiple file selection

The File Manager control has built-in support for the selection of multiple files or folders. Multiple-file selection is useful when a single operation like download or delete needs to be performed for multiple files in the file system.


Quick access menu

The File Manager control provides a context menu to list the operations that can be performed with the files and folders. It appears when a file or folder is right-clicked. The context menu items can be customized according to user preferences.

Localization in JavaScript File Manager.

Localization

The text of the context menu and tooltips displayed in the user interface can be localized to any supported language. The File Manager control uses a localization library (l10n) to localize the text values.


Context menu

The context menu improves user interaction with the JavaScript File Manager using a pop-up menu. It appears when a file, folder, or layout is right-clicked. Users can add custom context menu items to the built-in ones.

We do not sell the JavaScript File Manager separately. It is only available for purchase as part of the Syncfusion JavaScript suite, which contains over 80 JavaScript components, including the File Manager. A single developer license for the Syncfusion Essential Studio for JavaScript suite costs $995.00 USD, including one year of support and updates. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

You can find our JavaScript File Manager demo, which demonstrates how to render and configure the File Manager.

No, our 80+ JavaScript components, including File Manager, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their File Manager alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 80+ JavaScript components for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.
