It was built using CFForms and Flash remoting. My favourite feature is the multiple file upload, for which we have made an update to the file upload swf . The next step is to upgrade our flashupload custom tag to allow for multiple files.
We do not have a live demo running, but you can see a movie that shows most of the features. You can download it, see more screenshots and view more information in the project page:
FTP is not very reliable and it has not been tested much. I got it to work on my server but not in my local CF installation and I didn’t have the time to look into it much.
We hope you find a use for it, and that you like it so much that you’ll be inspired to get us something from our Amazon wish list ;)
