    FileMgr v1.1.9

    FileMgr is a powerful custom homebrew webOS service to provide file IO and file management control for Mojo apps.

    It's is probably best known for being the component powering my file manager, Internalz.

    FileMgr has come a long way. Version 1.0.0 is a huge step forward (and several code rewrites) in an efficient, developer-friendly service.

    Although it's closed source, I am publicly releasing an API specsheet for developers to freely use in their applications.

    In fact, I know Metaview's app, MapTool, uses FileMgr API to write GPS data to local files on the device.

    The API specsheet is attached to this post.

    FileMgr can be downloaded from the PreCentral feed as well as from:
    http://www.precentral.net/homebrew-apps/filemgr-service.

    If you have issues installing via Preware, install via WOSQI and it'll work for sure.


    Change Log
    v1.0.0 - April 22, 2010

    odd, worked fine in all the tests. Try installing with WebOS Quick Install. Oh, and the easiest way to get the ipkg log from preware is screenshots.

    this is great!!! Another donation is heading your way shortly!

    also, preware now has a "email ipkg log" function, so no longer need to take screenshots!

    If you find Internalz in the PreCentral feed via preware, it will automatically ask to install FileMGR with it.

    If you install from Preware, installing Internalz should install FileMgr as well.

    If you install from WebOS Quick Install, you can install both at the same time or both separately in any order. just keep in mind, until FileMgr makes it onto the device, you'll get errors in Internalz if you open it.

    Jason, this application is AMAZING. I've been dying for this. This is sort of one of those "Smartphone" features that should be built into the OS by default. Thanks so much.

    I installed both FileMgr and Internalz yesterday via Preware, did the update today and it works fine. This is excellent! Thanks Jason

    Argh. I tried to update via Preware, and the phone stayed offline after the java restart. I did a full Luna restart when the phone didn't come back online after the java restart. Something is preventing the telephony service from starting. I get no carrier display in the upper left. EVDO is working normally. Doing a full device restart now.. Will plug into usb so I can better check the log files if the phone doesn't come online.

    Luna restart only affects LunaSysMgr. You'd need to do a full device restart

    Hi Jason. How do you deploy the FileMgr service within an app and install it on another device? Thanks?

    The phone still came up offline after a full restart, but at least the radio was working. Turning airplane mode on and then off got everything working again. Strange. I'll try installing it from webosqi this evening.

    Do you think updating Internalz and FMS from the previous version using Preware could have caused it, vs a new install? I wouldn't think so.. I also had JStop running in the background at the time, but I don't remember ever seeing any warnings about that. I'll chalk it up to fluke for now.

    well, if you mean physically include, you can't really. Developers can tell their users to also install it manually, or can add "ca.canucksoftware.filemgr" as a depends for their package. And the api sheet shows how to access FileMgr.
