Some use cases of FreedomBox would be made easier if FreedomBox offered a file manager within the UI. I wonder what others think about integrating a file manager within our UI.
Currently, we rely on two methods for managing files in FreedomBox: (1) SSH and (2) file managers within specific client apps, like Syncthing’s file manager. Granting that file management through SSH is a bit cumbersome and that there are times when it is preferable to use a universal file manager instead of an app-specific file manager, it seems that our system has a gap: there is no file manager or the entire file system within the UI. I have found this to be cumbersome for my Ikiwiki
Integrate a file manager within our UI. Perhaps some critical directories can be locked in order to prevent accidental breakage of the system. The file manager should enable (1) viewing of all directories and (2) adding/deleting files in some directories (e.g. Ikiwiki’s directories).
What do people think about this idea in general?
If you support it, would you rate the time requirement of this feature as low, medium, or high?
