NanoNAS is a Network Attached Storage (NAS) server operating system designed to transform a basic computer into a dedicated HTTP, SMB/CIFS, or AFP file server. It fits on a single floppy disk and is intended for use in any low-security environment or application that requires the simultaneous availability of large amounts of inexpensive networked storage.By design, it is a community workgroup server and does not support features such as user management, disk quotas, or the ability to join domains. However, it is very easy to set-up, to administer, and to use.
synDirectory is used to retrieve and sort the current work directory list of of files. It opens the current directory and retrieves the list of files and sub-directories into separate arrays. Since it may be listing the directory where this package was installed, the package files are excluded from the listing. The arrays with the files and directories may be sorted by name, file size, file type, or last modified date. The package comes with a configuration file to help the user customize the output further. It is also possible to skin the output via CSS.
File exchange Protocol can be used to store and retrieve files in a remote repository server using HTTP. It can access a remote server using HTTP requests with authentication to protect the access to the remote files. The class can perform requests to create, write, read, and delete remote files. It can also create, list, and delete directories. It implements a stream wrapper interface to make it possible to access the remote files with PHP functions like fopen('fep://...') and other PHP file and directory manipulation functions. You can also apply a Stream Wrapper that allows you to mount a remote filesystem.
