Vue-fs: A home file server solution

The greatest use case I could hope for with this project is that someone uses it to turn their old laptop they were gonna throw away into a file server.

Vue-fs is meant to be just that. A simple home server app for anyone that wants to NAS the old hardware they have lying around. I'm also planning on adding more features in the future like User/API Auth, File Sharing and Public/Private folders.

🚀 Demo     💿 Source Repo

Features

✔️ Upload (multiple files)
✔️ Download (multiple files/directories)
✔️ Move (multiple files/directories)
✔️ Delete (multiple files/directories)
✔️ Subfolders
✔️ Extracting
✔️ Create new diretories
✔️ Filtering
✔️ File viewer *if compatible with the browser
✖️ Rename files/directories
✖️ User/API auth
✖️ HTTPS
✖️ File Sharing

Final Notes

I ran compatibility tests on the project's node backend with a Raspberry Pi, an old netbook running Ubuntu, and a Windows 10 machine. All features worked on all three of these test machines (thanks POSIX!).

I'm always open to collaboration, and would welcome pull requests. I hope someone out there finds this useful, and hopefully this will enrich the FOSS community in some small way. Thanks for checking it out guys!
