Please keep the Java File Manager!
Filemin vs. Java File Manager
Here are a few very important things missing in Filemin
- Folder tree (left frame) always visible for easy navigation and good view of folders.
- Ability to have several folders open at the same time in the folder tree view.
- Ability to open several files for editing, also from different folders and having them all up front and at the same time.
- Ability to search in edit mode.
- Ability to search an replace in edit mode.
- Ability to extract zip-files
- Ability to upload zip-files and unpack and delete zip in one action.
This I use all the time to update many files in many folders in one upload. Would be a real pain and take a really long time to do it file by file.
This is just a few of the things that is missing in the new Filemin and which I use all the time! PLEASE let the Java File Manager at least be a optional modul/function to install. I dont know how I can keep on doing my work without the outstanding Java File Manager. It's hard for me to explain (in English, i'm from Sweden) how important and superior the Java File manager is. I cant imagin that the Filemin File Manager ever reach the Java File manager functionality and work friendly interface. I know the Filemin is "fancy" but for people doing most of its work in the Filemanage all the fancy stuff means "more work". There are some things you have as optional installs in Virtualmin Pro that you really dont recommend users to install, so why dont have the Java File Manager which is a excelent and important part of Virtualmin Pro as optional install.
We build, support and host web based software(made by us) to several Swedish municipalities and counties that also in parts are used by its citizens. We dont have any customer that have access to the servers or their virtual servers, we do all the programing and updates on software and also updating the citizens data in our databases. We do all the coding manually with text editors, both off-line and on-line, but most of the daily work is done on-line in the Java File Manager.
Is it just me who really want to keep the Java File Manager? If not, please add your wote for keeping the Java File Manager.
