The Kinky File Explorer is a totally free ColdFusion based file exploration system designed to provide read-only access to a specific directory of files. The idea here is that you can provide users with an easy way to view your project codebase without having to worry about them snooping around.

Build 2007/11/20

Bug Fixes:

  • Gareth pointed out that when you click from one file to another file, the content area of the file stays at the same scroll offset. Now, when you click from file to file, the content frame is scrolled back to the top.

Build 2007/10/19

Bug Fixes:

  • AJAX calls getting jumbled. Now, when a new AJAX request is made, any existing AJAX call is cancelled. This way, only the most recent one will populate the file data area.
  • Default file was not being selected since it's class name was not just "file". I have changed the attribute selector to handle both classes "file" and "selected".

Build 2007/10/16

This build does not come with any examples or documentation, but should be able to run on its own as a stand-alone demo.
