Manage Resource Folder

By Miguel 'Kelter' Antunes on 30 Apr 2011
It would be nice to have something like a Tree Folder Browsing to manage the Resource folder in Service Studio, for the cases where we need to import some .js's, css's, .swf's for example.

Currently the Service Studio only allows the user to add resources file by file into a eSpace.
It would be great it we could select a folder or set of folders and add to the eSpace.

I believe that this should be merged with this:

While they are not identical, the general gist is that the "resources" system should act like a basic file system tool, and not the current list of items that is very difficult to work with (says the guy who used updating the CK Editor's hundreds of files as a way of helping a new employee learn the system...).

I know your pain. 
I created the ckeditor v4 with tons of files.... that was a real pain.

The resources folder in Service Studio should have drag and drop support like the images folder.

This way it should be possible to add multiple resources at a time or even complete folders.

For the time being, you can use a command line switch to open Service Center to import resources by a folder of file mask. Not ideal, but fantastic if you have hundreds to do (like when updating CK Editor).

Hi guys,

Thanks for sharing your feedback and ideas! We are using them more and more to build a better product!

I’m happy to announce that, as of ServiceStudio version 10.0.613.0 (available here), you’ll be able to import resources by dragging and dropping multiple files with any kind of extension (.js, .txt, .json, .swf, ...) to the Resources folder (or directly to the module node):

Hope you enjoy it ;)

Please give us feedback,

Cheers!

It is better now but only allows dragging of files not folders and you have to edit each file individually to set a folder 

Any chance this can be extended to allow folders to be uploaded and to populate the target folder automatically? As with Rui's case trying to import something like ckeditor is a real paid, lots of files and lots of folders.

Alternatively importing a zip file and having it auto extract would be perfect.
