Secure FTP Web Application

Posted 14 August 2012 - 05:51 PM

I would like to develop something similar to the Dropbox Web Application.
This site will be based on secure ftp. When a user logs onto the web app,
they will be directed to their partition. I already have something up and running.
See --> hackerz.homelinux.com

I set up a dummy user name and password:

user name: fred
password: fredisdead

Please accept my certificate. :)
I have some dummy code in the portal. Obviously not a complete example.
What are your insights on this site? I would like to provide means to allow users
to easily upload and download their files. My background is Java and mostly Perl (CGI).
I'm thinking about writing an sftp engine in Perl script and having that script placed
in CGI. This guy could handle all the http request for file I/O. The client side would
employ jquery, javascript, and of course ajax.
What are your thoughts?

What about this? --> http://www.html5rock...ile/filesystem/
The website url was deceiving. I thought this was all about html 5. Nope. This is all bout the FilySystem API from Google Chrome. :(

Here is another requirement:
1. Must avoid any usage of PHP and Python.

Yes! :) --> http://net.tutsplus....filesystem-api/

Apparently I misread these sites. The FileSystem API is completely supported in Google Chrome. Whereas the other browsers only partially support it. Since I'm a Mac OS X and Linux user, I'm coding towards Firefox and Safari.
