XODA is a Web-based DMS file manager

XODA is a free web-based self-hosted file manager that helps you store, organize and manage your files on your own server.

The app is built using PHP, HTML5 and JavaScript. Although, it published since 2007, it has dozens of devoted users who are still using it.

Unlike other solutions which make a use of extensive database, XODA uses a flat-file to store its data, so it does not require any external database like MySQL or PostgreSQL.

XODA is a KISSed (Keep It Simple and Stupid) System for Organizing Documents using AJAX. This is a (DMS) Document Management System without backend database, though making possible organizing files/directories by descriptions, filters and more. (XODA)
