Some feedback, based on having tried out surfer (great little app, by the way!)
- The "App passwords" dropdown for a surfer instance mentions SFTP, which seems a little wrong.
- It might be useful to mention _webdav in the documentation, as an alternative for interacting with surfer?
- It would be great to be able to customize the handling of some mimetypes. For example, when uploading a QML file, surfer will serve it up with application/octet-stream, rather than a text type, which makes browsers offer to download it, which is a bit annoying given how they are basically just text.
Lastly, a small script here for anyone who wants basic "upload this file" functionality but cannot use npm for whatever reason. You are expected to have a file ~/.surfer/auth with two lines (user/pass), and ~/.server/server which contains the bare hostname to upload to. You can use Cloudron's app passwords feature to avoid using your "regular" password, for some added paranoia.
#!/usr/bin/env bash set -euo pipefail user=$(head -n1 ~/.surfer/auth) password=$(tail -n1 ~/.surfer/auth) server=$(cat ~/.surfer/server) # the file to upload... FILE=up.sh.txt curl -T "$FILE" -u "$user:$password" https://$server/_webdav/ echo "Uploaded to https://$server/$(basename $FILE)"
A few other small suggestions while I'm thinking of it:
- It would be nice if the admin UI had the ability to multiselect (and perhaps "select all") files, to delete a bunch of stuff at once.
- It would be neat if it were possible to write-protect a file to prevent it being overwritten or deleted without removing the write protection
