Initialize File Manager Using SystemJS in Angular FileManager component

File manager can also be initialized using SystemJS as follows

Installation and configuration

  • To setup basic Angular sample use the following commands.
git clone https://github.com/angular/quickstart.git quickstart
cd quickstart
npm install

For more information, refer to Angular sample setup.

  • Install Syncfusion file manager packages using the below command.
npm install @syncfusion/ej2-angular-filemanager --save

The above package installs File Manager dependencies which are required to render the component in an Angular environment.

  • Syncfusion ej2-angular-filemanager packages need to be mapped in systemjs.config.js configuration file.
/**
 * System configuration for Angular samples
 * Adjust as necessary for your application needs.

(function (global) {
  System.config({
    paths: {
      // paths serve as alias
      'npm:': 'node_modules/',
      "syncfusion:": "node_modules/@syncfusion/", // syncfusion alias

    },
    // map tells the System loader where to look for things

To render the file manager component, need to import file manager and its dependent component’s styles as given below in style.css.

@import '@syncfusion/ej2-base/styles/material.css';
@import '@syncfusion/ej2-navigations/styles/material.css';
@import '@syncfusion/ej2-layouts/styles/material.css';
@import '@syncfusion/ej2-dropdowns/styles/material.css';
@import '@syncfusion/ej2-inputs/styles/material.css';
@import '@syncfusion/ej2-lists/styles/material.css';
@import '@syncfusion/ej2-splitbuttons/styles/material.css';
@import '@syncfusion/ej2-popups/styles/material.css';
@import '@syncfusion/ej2-buttons/styles/material.css';
@import '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-filemanager/styles/material.css';

Note: If you want to refer the combined component styles, please make use of our CRG (Custom Resource Generator) in your application.

Create a simple File Manager

Refer the following code to include the file manager in application .

  • Create an Angular component with file manager. Add the following file manager template in component template of app.component.html
<ejs-filemanager id='overview' [ajaxSettings]='ajaxSettings'>
</ejs-filemanager>
  • Create an Angular module and include the above file manager component.
  • In the module, declare the Component and Directives required to render the file manager.
  • Bootstrap the application with the above module.

Refer to the following snippet to import the FileManagerAllModule in app.module.ts from the @syncfusion/ej2-angular-filemanager.

import { AppComponent } from './app.component';
import { HttpModule, JsonpModule } from '@angular/http';
import { BrowserModule } from '@angular/platform-browser';
import 'rxjs/add/operator/map';
import { NgModule } from '@angular/core';

import { FileManagerAllModule } from '@syncfusion/ej2-angular-filemanager';

@NgModule({
    imports: [FileManagerAllModule, HttpModule, JsonpModule, BrowserModule],
    declarations: [AppComponent],
    bootstrap: [AppComponent]
})
export class AppModule { }

systemjs.config.js file should be configured as described in the Installation and configuration section.

Run the application

Use the npm run start command to run the application in the browser.

npm start

The following samples shows the file manager component in browser.
