No more swapping USB drives!
This is an initial release of a web based file manager for the Organelle. It requires the Organelle to be on WiFi, and there are a couple things to install manually (we are working on easier WiFi and installation for all users coming soon!). It features folder management, zipping and unzipping, drag-and-drop uploading, and even has a preview player for sound files. It is quickly becoming indispensable around the studio here!
Many web based file mangers we tried either lacked basic functionality, were too bloated, or looked like windows 95, so we decided to write our own. We kept it nice and simple to eliminate the bugs that come along with editing a file tree over ajax. So no drag-and-drop to move things around, you have to use cut / paste. But there is drag-and-drop uploading – drag files into the window and they are uploaded to the current folder. This is really great for swapping sound files in a patch.
This assumes you already have your Organelle on the WiFi network and you have OS v2.1 or higher.
Download the app here:
Create a System folder on your USB drive if you don’t have one, unzip the app and put it in the System folder. So it should look like this:
You can change ‘Organelle_File_Manager’ to whatever you like.
There are a couple extra packages to install too, but the are included with the app, so all you have to do is:
cd /usbdrive/System/Organelle_File_Manager ./install.sh
Now you can choose Reload from the System menu and the file manager will show up on the OLED screen. Just select it and it should start up.
