1. Webix File Manager
We have put this widget in the first place, because we consider it to be one of the most functional and useful among all similar solutions. We have already done a detailed review of it, which you can find here. The new version, which was released earlier this year, contains many improvements:
- dual panel mode
- preview panel
- thumbnail support for image files
- built-in media player
- text editor
- many other features.
It is worth noting the beautiful design, and a ready-made set of icons, which are included in the delivery. And in our opinion, the Webix library offers the best solution available on the market. Webix File Manager is a ready-made SPA. Its interface is designed to simplify the process of customization and integration into third-party solutions.

2. Syncfusion File Explorer
The popular Syncfusion product offers its users a simple file management tool that strongly resembles Windows File Explorer. The developers have provided a somewhat simplified interface design, obviously assuming that users would develop and integrate their own design.

3. Bootstrap File Manager SDK
Another colorful and functional explorer, previously known as AlphaManager. It will definitely be the right choice for those who have decided to develop their solution on the Bootstrap platform
4. DHTMLX File Explorer
DHTMLX offers a high-quality file manager that may be of interest to developers who have chosen this UI library.

This library offers a simple but concise solution for managing files.
A somewhat chaotic and redundant file manager built with jQuery.
When we started writing this review, we were hoping to provide a few more file management solutions. But among the many projects reviewed, there are not many complete applications that continue to be supported and updated. At the time of writing this article, an interview was published with Bernd Gewehr (head of IT Department of Vössing Engineering), where he talks about an interesting case of adapting the Webix File Explorer interface. This once again emphasizes the exceptional value of this product.
