AFS & Kerberos Best Practices
website runs an ITCS-developed software
package named filedrawers. This is a
web-based file manager which talks to
an AFS filesystem back-end with
File Drawers is developed primarily with php,
and C for file uploads. We have plans to extend it
to handle other file systems, but would appreciate
contributions of effort.
Unfortunately, the source code is immature, and not
ready to serve as a generic web-based file manager. The
source contains a large number of graphics, hooks, and
links which are specific to the University of Michigan
computing environment. Creating a non-umich version is
a substantial ongoing project. If this project is
compelling to you, then we invite to help.
The filedrawers source code is now available for download under an
open source license.
