Web File GUI

Desktop-Like UI for File Managing

Over the summer of 2010, a friend and I decided to dabble in web programming (since we had time available). Specifically, we wanted to create a file storage website similar to Dropbox, although neither of us new of its existence at the time. ¬†Although we never actually finished the project, it was really useful in helping me learn web programming (something I’ve wanted to learn for a while). ¬†I even coded up a preliminary OS-like UI for file explorers.

You can try the website here: ExtDrive

Please note that many of the icons and images used in the website are not original (they came from other sources, such as Azenis Icons). I had no intention of using them in a final product (were it to be completed); they were merely examples of what the site could look like. And yes, there is still a long way to go, and it will probably never be completed, but it was definitely a lot of fun to build.
