How to install or uninstall modules



Allow modal editing of files on filesystem. The list of directories and filesare displayed, clicking on file opens modal window with codemirror editor. If file is an image, viewer is opened in modal. If file is used as a template, link to the template edit is provided. Intended primarily for superusers, give other users file-edit permission.

This is not the replacement for full blown editor. Be aware that if you makechanges to files that cause PW to throws an error in admin, you loose access to this module too and you will need some other means to access the file again!

Directory path

Path to the directory from which to display directory tree. By default it's setto $config->paths->site

Extensions Filter

Comma separated list of extensions to filter files by. By default "php,module,js,css".

Include or exclude extensions

Select to include or exclude files based on the extensions defined in ExtensionFilter. Include is default, so files matching extensions will be displayed in directory/file tree.

Editor Height

The height of the editor textarea, default is "auto", can be any height like "450px".


Copy the files to the /site/modules/ProcessFileEdit folder, log in to your ProcessWireadmin and go to the Modules page. Click the Refresh button and then Install. More info at http://modules.processwire.com/install-uninstall/
