I’m trying to set up a creative collaberative file repository for a group of people to share research for a creative project. Everyone would like to use FTP to post files on the server, but we’d like to set up a web based interface to browse and search the system.
The ideal system would do the following:
- Automatically sense changes to the folders on the FTP and add the files to the database.
- Generate thumbnails for images and movies at lower resolutions so people can decide what they want to download quickly before actually transferring the files.
- Index DOC and PDF documents so they are searchable.
The best solution I’ve been able to find for something like this is the OWL Intranet Repository. http://owl.sourceforge.net/. Does anyone know of some other good open source file repository systems that might have a more simple interface?
