I know there has been a few such things started in the past, notably Nathan
Wilcox's JavaScript library includes a JavaScript treeview interface to

I also spent a few days about this time last year hacking together a Cajita
"Tahoe Explorer" application, witih support for drag and drop for copying
files, amongst some other features. The code works (at least under Firefox
3.0.18) with Tahoe 1.6.1 and can be found here


Download 'explorer.zip' and unzip it in the 'public_html' subdir of your
tahoe web client's base directory (creating 'public_html' if necessary). You
should then be able to navigate to e.g.


Paste a raw directory URI (i.e. one without the 'http://.../uri/' prefix) in
to the top textbox and click the "Go" button, which should bring up a
treeview underneath that should behave as one might expect. Clicking entries
brings up a popup menu. Immutable entries are written in a gray (as opposed
to black) font.

Do feel free to email me if you have any questions about the code; however,
I don't expect to actively develop it any further at the moment owing to
lack of time.
