    ...a what??

    You want to build what... An electron file explorer? A server file browser?

    @AlgoRythm a file explorer shown on web as component, I figured ways to make it myself, but too tired to reinventing the wheel

    @devTea I don't really understand and am therefore of no help

    @AlgoRythm seems like the correct term is server explorer

    @devTea OHHHH okay. What's your stack? Node? PHP? You mentioned JS so I'm assuming Node

    If it's node I'm sure there are a hundred million fucking packages on npm. If not I'll write you one

    @AlgoRythm nah I decided to make on myself, the backend just generate the dirs/files and send the path to the front end to generate the icons and such thing

    @devTea that's what I would do. Really a simple task, just make sure not to expose any sensitive paths.

    Would it be something similar to what we see in a Jupyter notebook which contains folders and files like how we would see them irl? I think i know what you want, some time ago I saw a library that does this. It is pretty hardcore stuff. Once I get close to my computer I'll check for you :D

    @AlgoRythm yes I’m replacing the base dir and only show file extension specified on backend. Thanks for the concern

    @AleCx04 yeah, but it won’t edit the content, it just shows folder and allow to download the files

    @devTea Something I found is that browsers will correct for path transversals. You need to use cURL to truly test it.

    curl --path-as-is localhost:8080/../sensitive_file.dat

    Don't mean to tell you how to do your job, just offering some hopefully welcome experience.

    @err-occured I don't think he asked for a torturing tool, he just wanted a simple file explorer lol

    @gitpush it does have a simple file explorer as it uses windows default file explorer layout. Granted it’s over 10 years old, but I’m sure you could make it work somehow 😂

    @gitpush fuck sake 😂

    @err-occured well this is going access shared folder so browser built-in mostly doesn’t allow a redirect to there

    For a similar task I had, I used ag-grid, they have good documentation for all front end frameworks and even a nice example on their website.

    @devTea h5ai ? It's quite nice if that's the kind of thing you're looking for.
