File Explorer

***WARNING***: This app does NOT display its output on the device's screen. Its output is only accessible through a web browser running on your computer. If you want to view the filesystem on the device's screen, have a look at other apps on the store.

File Explorer enables you to view the device's filesystem and monitor file/directory modifications in real-time without cluttering your device's main display. Instead, File Explorer runs a node.js-based process in the background that listens to a socket connection. By pointing your computer's web browser to that socket on the device -- say using "adb forward" -- you can explore and modify the filesystem and monitor it in real-time. Different icons are displayed for different file types.

Note that the present release is the first public release of this app and its corresponding node.js-based backend. ***Expect things to break***. We feel good enough about this version to start having early adopters play with it and give us feedback. There are a lot of things that could and will be made better.

Oh, and one last thing. This app's sources and those of its node.js-based backend are available under the Apache Software License on github:

Enjoy!
