Perfect for Warehousing: Repository Stack


(Jannis from inStacks Software) #1

You want to organise your warehoused photos on your server the correct way, or upload photos for Gallery Stack? You want to provide your customer a way to upload documents, or dowload them? Need to perform a change on website files when you are not on your Mac?

Repository Stack is the perfect answer therefore. It is a File Manager, Media Browser, and Online Text Editor for RapidWeaver and allows you to manage your server files and saves you a lot of time:

  • Upload all kind of files like images or documents, also by drag and drop
  • Create, rename, or delete folders and files
  • Move files around the server location
  • Edit text documents like css, js, html, or php directly on the server
  • Preview images in a gallery style lightbox

This stack is very good, especially if you’re interested in image warehousing (highly recommend).

Another brilliant idea for RW users.

As file managers go this stack is a real powerhouse. Well worth the money too!

Released a smart v1.1 update:

  • You are now able to use a second username / password to login into the UI. Will see if an integration into Sitelok is possible. Thanks @mp1963 therefore
  • Email notification for newly uploaded files. Thanks @Rovertek for that idea

v1.2 will get even better warehousing and embedding capabilities :wink:

@instacks: integration with Sitelok would be fantastic! Hope it can happen.

Wow. This is a powerful stack.

(Adrian Jones) #10

Thats great news. Glad you got that working.

(Mathew Mitchell) #11

@instacks: I just checked the tutorial and I can let an entire group in! Fantastic. This is great for classes and other groups that use Sitelok. Instant purchase.

Repository Stack 1.3 now contains an Embed Stack for different media types like text, video, audio, csv, pdf.
This allows you to build some sort of localizeable Mini CMS for your static RW site.
Check it out here:

Thanks @Mathew for testing :slight_smile:

The embed feature is really nice. I’m already thinking about how I might use this for a couple of courses I’m teaching next semester. Well implemented!

Thanks for making the Repository stack stronger and more versatile over time.

I’ve been out the loop on things lately, just getting going with Repo again now, looking at the embed stack but clueless about what it is or how to use it. Could you explain?

(I’ve harrassed Jannis enough today so won’t ask him!)

(Jannis from inStacks Software) #15

It’s always good to check the docu :wink:

(steve bee) #16

I did, still can’t work it out!

I’ll wait for the video.

(Mathew Mitchell) #17

Steve: I’ll try to create a short video today. Unfortunately I’m located in California, so that video may not get to you until past 7 p.m. your time.

(steve bee) #18

That’s really kind of you Matthew! My comment was to Jannis, as it says on his site in the Embed section “Video coming soon”, it wasn’t a request to you to do one, but if you do, I’d be really grateful.

(Mathew Mitchell) #19

Steve: Here’s the video. I did not have the time to “think it through” before recording. If I had it would have been more succinct. It’s 10 minutes. Hopefully this will help. And, obviously, if I have stated anything incorrectly then I’m sure Jannis will correct me!

(steve bee) #20

Matthew, you’re an absolute star, I now “get it”.

I was kinda half way there, but I was getting a couple of things wrong. Your video has put me on the right lines now.

Can’t thank you enough for taking the trouble. THANKYOU!

And yes, I buy a mean pint :wink:
