Alternative File Manager
If you need to integrate CKEditor with a server side language not supported by CKFinder, or are generally just looking for an open and free alternative, check out our File Manager:

http://labs.corefive.com/2009/10/30/an- ... ditor-3-0/

It's built with jQuery and includes an API which allows you to hook it up to your language of choice. We've included a connector for Lasso, and have started one for python. Contributions for additional languages are welcome. It integrates with both CKEditor and FCKEditor.

Cheers,
Jason

Re: Alternative File Manager
It sounds great but, (sorry for the silly question) : WHERE can I download it ???????
I didn't see any download link at all on the site.

Re: Alternative File Manager
The project is available via a Subversion repository as noted here:

http://labs.corefive.com/projects/filemanager/

You can check out a copy by issuing the following command in a terminal window:

svn co svn://corefive.com/svn/filemanager/

For those not comfortable with the command line, there are a multitude of desktop clients for Subversion. Popular ones include SVN X and Versions on the Mac, RapidSVN on Linux, and TortoiseSVN on Windows.

Re: Alternative File Manager
Ok, Actually I didn't even heard about svn, but with TortoiseSVN
things are pretty easy to do.
I downloaded the filemanager folder. Now I just have
to integrate it and test it.
I'll let you know my first impressions.

Thanks

Re: Alternative File Manager
Hi, it's me again.

I just can't define the variable fileRoot in filemanager.config.js, I tried
several folder names (/mysite/, /localhost/ etc...) but each time I've got
this message in the left panel:

Notice: Undefined variable: root in C:\localhost\mysite\filemanager\trunk\scripts\jquery.filetree\connectors\jqueryFileTree.php on line 21

Could you show me the proper way to define the fileRoot variable ?

Thanks

Re: Alternative File Manager
Those two variables aren't related. If you notice where the error is coming from, it's the PHP connector for the jQuery FileTree plugin. It requires an external variable $root to be set.

Once we add a PHP connector for the FIleManager, we'll make sure that gets set in a config file. Currently the only 100% complete server side connector is for Lasso, though a python connector is well under way, and we've already had a couple people offer to contribute connectors for other languages.
