Idea: folder view enhancement
#1
Hi,

I've been thinking about improvements for the folderview to have a better usability feeling.

What do You think about this - a view similiar to the tag view?

I quickly created a picture with cut screenshots to show what I mean:

[Image: view?usp=sharing]

On the left is the folder list - by clicking on a folder the subfolders and files are listed in the right panel.
In the bottom panel You can see all files from the main folder - or if You select a folder in the right folder - just the contents of this one - similiar to the tag view.

I think that would be a great improvement  Smile

So far - merry xmas!

Stephan

EDIT: meanwhile I realized that a folder tree view is necessary for this to work properly

Why not just use Tag view?

There are plenty of good tag editors. Use one of them and get yourself out of Folder jail ;-)

'folder jail'  Big Grin

let me put it like this - folders are also a collection of tags, provided by the filesystem - so they may be seen as tag list, just with a different tag provider Wink
I think it's easier to provide a certain order and logic by folders than to edit the tags of thousands (@ least it feels like so many) of files...

(and yes, sure there are good tag editors - but they are not available in the moOde interface... well this was just another idea  Wink )

but I REALLY wished there would be an improvement for the folder view as I mentioned above.
I think you already have some of the components in the album view - it's just that the album array will be filled with albums found in the selected folder and not from the tags.
Additional a tree view for the folders will be necessary.
