yawd-elfinder - Django File Manager | Yawd Web Applications


Yawd-elfinder is a Django application that incorporates all the features of the file management tool, elfinder v2. It allows quick and easy uploading, copying and editing your files via the management interface of your website.

The continuous development of the original elFinder guarantees that it can even meet the expectations of a production system. The elegance and simplicity of it's interface (inspired by the program management operating system files in Mac OSX Apple) makes it very attractive to the user. We managed to fill the missing gap of implementing elFinder for Django applications.
